Hopefully, you are encouraging your patients to get their influenza vaccines, but have you gotten your own? To credibly promote vaccination, shouldn’t we as nurses receive influenza vaccinations as well? The American Nurses Association (ANA) is encouraging all nurses to Unite to Fight the Flu. Visit ANA’s immunization site at www.anaimmunize.org for more information.
