Daily News: Tomorrow Health Care Worker Vaccination Day

The American Nurses Association is urging nurses and healthcare workers to get vaccinated on Friday, Dec. 12, which has been designated as Health Care Worker Vaccination Day.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 42% of healthcare workers got immunizations against the flu virus last year. The ANA, in a news release, called the low percentage of healthcare workers getting vaccinations unacceptable, especially because of the high-risk of infection in healthcare settings. Vaccinations, according to the ANA, can help nurses safeguard themselves, their patients, families, and communities.
