National Influenza Vaccination Week, December 8-14 is upon us, and it’s a great time to spread the word on how to avoid spreading the flu. Urgent care centers across the nation are already taking part in the week’s activities. In fact, we at Practice Velocity, the #1 rated EMR / EHR for urgent care, have made the rounds ensuring flu vaccines are available for free to every employee!
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) developed National Influenza Vaccination Week to promote how important it is to get vaccinated for flu, particularly during the holiday season and beyond. Interestingly, the CDC has noticed in previous years that as the holidays approach, the number of flu vaccinations administered drops off; this week of recognition in December has been designated to raise awareness and the number of people vaccinated.
Even though National Influenza Vaccination Week is underway, your urgent care center can still get in on activities today! Here’s a short list of ideas:
