      .....Where are we now?


Healthcare Personnel Flu Vaccination Rates in Oregon

  • Hospitals

    • 2010-2011: 65%

    • 2011-2012 69%

What AreLane County LTCF Averages?

  • 12 LTCFs in data

  • Employee vaccination: 60%

  • Credentialed non-employees: 42%

  • Other Non-Employees: 40%

  • Average overall facility rate: 63%


Although Lane County LTCFs are above the state average,

...for our patients, families, coworkers, and ourselves....

We Can Do Better!


Healthcare PersonnelNational Goals:

  • CDC, ACIP, and HICPAC

    recommend that ALL health care workers be vaccinated annually for influenza

  • Healthy People 2010 Goal: 60%

  • Healthy People 2015 Goal: 70%

  • Healthy People 2020 Goal: 90%

  • Higher flu vaccine rates among staff can reduce flu related illness and deaths!


Out of 12 LTCFs in Lane Countyincluded in the data:

  • 42% (5/12) are meeting Healthy People 2010 target of ≥ 60% HCP flu vaccination

  • 25% (3/12) are meetingHealthy People 2015 target of ≥ 70% HCP flu vaccination

  • 17% (2/12) are meetingHealthy People 2020 target of ≥ 90% HCP flu vaccination


How can we work together to improve these rates?

  • Building success through partnership

  • SOAR: Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results

  • For your facility, identify:

    • Current strengths & capabilities

    • Current needs

    • Current barriers

  • Determine project strategy and activities

  • Evaluate 2012-2013 outcomes

  • Plan next year’s program


  • Evidence-Based Strategies:

    Increase HCP flu vaccination rates by:

    • offering vaccines low-cost or free

    • on-site vaccination

    • multiple delivery times

    • convenient delivery

    • requirements and declinations
