I understand that:
The influenza vaccination is recommended for me and all other healthcare workers to protect this facility’s patients from influenza, its complications, and harm.
The strains of virus that cause influenza infection change almost every year and, even if they don’t change, my immunity declines over time, and vaccination against influenza is recommended each year.
I cannot get influenza from the influenza vaccine itself.
If I decide that I want the vaccine I will notify NPLH or my physician & obtain the vaccine (if the vaccine is still available for the current season).
