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 or Monterey County Health Department websites.
Don’t “friend” the flu.
We at Community Hospital believe in flu vaccinations to protect our patients, our community and our families. In the 2015/2016 flu season, 96% of our employees were vaccinated. This compares to a national rate of 78% 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.
