Health Care Personnel Influenza Immunization Toolkit

In an effort to reduce the spread of influenza and to protect the health of both patients and health care providers, the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative recommends that all health care providers receive the seasonal influenza immunization.

KHC's 2015-16 statewide influenza immunization survey found that influenza immunization among health care workers continues to rise in Kansas. Read the news release here.
