SEASONAL INFLUENZA INFORMATION
Medical Staff and Allied Health Professionals:
It is time again to submit documentation that you have either received or are declining the influenza vaccine. This year the Sacramento County Health Officer has declared that influenza season is November 1 through March 31 and has mandated all healthcare workers, including physicians and allied health professionals (AHPs), who have direct contact with patients be immunized or wear a surgical mask.
Those physicians and AHPs who are immunized will receive a sticker to wear on their ID badge. Anyone presenting to patient care areas without a sticker on their badge will be required to wear a surgical mask.
To help with access to influenza vaccinations we will be giving free influence vaccinations at the following times and locations. Get your influenza vaccination AND complete your physician satisfaction survey at the same time!
