Worksite: Seasonal Influenza Vaccinations Using Interventions with On-Site, Free, Actively Promoted Vaccinations – Healthcare Workers

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends interventions with on-site, free, and actively promoted influenza vaccinations to increase influenza vaccination coverage among health care workers when implemented alone or as part of a multicomponent intervention. Interventions to increase uptake of flu vaccines in health care workers involve making vaccines available to workers and announcing this availability using things such as newsletters, emails, or paycheck inserts. Vaccines are offered on site and may be provided at cost, reduced cost, or no cost; with health education and mobile units; in clinics; and at multiple locations.
