Test Your Knowledge - Flu Vaccination

Which of the following agencies recommends influenza vaccination for healthcare workers?

A.) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
B.) Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC)
C.) Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO)
D.) All of the above

D.) is the correct answer. All of the above agencies recommend that healthcare workers be vaccinated against influenza. The CDC calls on facilities to remove barriers that prevent all healthcare workers in a workplace from being vaccinated. Some ways to do this are by offering the vaccine free of charge and at a convenient time for employees. Also, require written declination forms from those who choose not to be vaccinated.

Use the declination form found in Tab 11 of your Quality America OSHA Safety Program Manual or Tab 8 of your Dental OSHA Safety Program Manual.
