North Carolina DHHS makes flu vaccines mandatory for healthcare workers. #nurseup #vaccination #influenza

North Carolina DHHS makes flu vaccines mandatory for healthcare workers:"The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services recently directed leaders of 14 state-operated healthcare facilities to institute a mandatory flu vaccination policy for 10,000 employees and volunteers to protect patients.
Employees of the DHHS Division of State Operated Healthcare Facilities were told about the policy in late August. Employees must be vaccinated by December 1.
“More than 52 hospitals and health systems in our state have already made the judicious decision to implement mandatory flu vaccination policies to protect against illness,” Aldona Wos, the DHHS secretary, said. “Because many of the patients and residents in our state facilities are at high risk for complications from flu, this is a responsible decision that will create a safer environment for our patients and staff.”
