Flu season is just a couple months away, and local public health departments across the country are encouraging citizens to get up-to-date on all immunizations during the month of August. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 98% of influenza-related deaths from 1990 to 1999 occurred in people 65 years and older. With a large generation of Baby Boomers now falling into this age group, implementing immunization best practices is more important than ever.
HHQI’s Immunization and Infection Control Best Practice Intervention Package (BPIP) contains 58 pages of valuable immunization information, tools and resources that will help prepare staff and patients for the impending 2013-14 flu season. Click here to download it today.
