facts about the flu virus
Facts About the Flu Virus
  • Influenza (Flu)
    • Among the most common respiratory illnesses
    • Infects millions of people every flu season and hospitalizes more than 200,000 people
    • Between 1976 and 2006, estimates of yearly flu-associated deaths in the United States range from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people.
the case for healthcare personnel hcp vaccination
The Case for Healthcare Personnel (HCP) Vaccination
  • Rapid spread in health care settings
  • Only 3 out of 5 nurses and other healthcare workers get vaccinated
  • Healthcare worker influenza immunization rates remain around 60%, well below the Healthy People 2020 goal of 90%.
studies show
Studies Show…
  • Staff influenza immunization prevents:
    • spread of the flu to patients, other workers, and families
    • staff illness and missed days at work
    • flu-related illness and death, especially among people at increased risk for severe flu illness
  • Facilities with higher numbers of immunized staff have a lower risk of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) flu cases.
  • Low flu vaccination coverage among HCPs is associated with flu outbreaks in healthcare facilities.
recommendation for hcp immunization
Recommendation for HCP Immunization
  • The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all healthcare personnel, even those in training for healthcare professions, should be vaccinated annually against the flu in order to reduce complications associated with the flu in healthcare settings.

  • Answer: TRUE or FALSE
    • A flu vaccine can't give you the flu.
    • The "stomach flu" and influenza are the same thing.
    • Getting a flu vaccine in December or later is not too late.
    • Flu viruses change constantly which requires a new flu vaccine to be produced each year.
    • Washing your hands is the best thing you can do to protect against the flu.
    • The flu vaccine protects against three strains of flu.
    • The flu is typically spread through coughs and/or sneezes.
    • The flu is not a serious illness.

A flu vaccine can't give you the flu.
  • TRUE!
    • The flu vaccine cannot make you sick.
    • The viruses in the vaccine are either killed before making the vaccine (flu shot) or weakened (nasal spray vaccine), so they cannot cause infection.
the stomach flu and influenza are the same thing
The "stomach flu" and influenza are the same thing.
  • FALSE!
    • The flu is a respiratory (lung) disease, not a stomach or intestinal disease. The main symptoms of the flu are fever (usually high), headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat and muscle aches. Stomach symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, also can occur but are more  common in children than  adults.

  • TRUE!
    • Flu viruses are constantly changing in order to survive (called “antigenic drift”) – they can change from one season to the next or they can even change within the course of one flu season. Experts must study how the virus changes each year and pick which viruses to include in the vaccine.
    • This is one reason why people need to get immunized each year.
