The flu and you
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses for everyone 6 months of age and older. For more information about the flu, visit the CDC web site.
Don’t “friend” the flu.
We at Community Hospital believe in flu vaccinations to protect our patients, our community and our families. In the 2013/2014 flu season, 96% of our employees were vaccinated. This compares to a national rate of 72% among health care workers. We are proud of this number. For those employees unable to receive the vaccine, our caregivers will wear a mask when directly caring for patients.
