Vaccine Poster – Have you Received? Notify us Now.

Influenza, or the flu, as commonly referred to, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses.  It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.  According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are as many as 200,000 hospitalizations and approximately 36,000 people die from flu-related causes each year.  This poster was developed as a tool to remind providers and their clinical staff of the importance for engaging patients and encouraging them to take advantage of these life-saving vaccines as part of a comprehensive vaccine preventable disease program.  This tool also serves as a trigger to include complete vaccine history in the individual electronic health record.
