  • Mandatory Immunization of Health Care Personnel Against Influenza and Other Infectious Diseases

    Because healthcare personnel (HCP) work in an environment where contact with patients or infective material from patients is routine, HCP are at risk for exposure to vaccine-preventable diseases and possible transmission to patients, their families, and other HCP.  Vaccination programs are therefore an essential component of infection prevention and control.  Preventing health care-associated transmission of influenza and other infectious diseases can protect patients, HCP, and local communities.  For this reason, IDSA supports mandatory immunization of HCP according to recommendations of the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
