The NAIIS Influenza Work Group is a diverse multi-sectoral partnership that strives to improve influenza vaccination coverage rates and adult vaccination best practices through systems-level approaches. The Work Group operationalizes these goals by promoting healthcare personnel vaccination, creating tools that encourage safe vaccine administration, and developing resources that encourage more providers to vaccinate. The Work Group includes public health experts, medical center occupational health directors, state and local health departments, the private medical sector, vaccine manufacturers and distributors, academic institutions, and medical professional organizations.
Projects and Resources
Satellite, temporary, and off-site vaccination clinics play an important role in improving vaccination coverage rates and vaccinating hard-to-reach populations. These helpful tools were developed to help these clinics meet the unique challenges presented when providing services in these settings.
Vaccination of healthcare personnel in long-term care facilities against influenza has been associated with reductions in all-cause mortality among patients and hospitalizations of individuals with influenza-like illness. This guidance was developed to help leaders and administrators of long-term care facilities increase the influenza vaccination coverage rates of their staff.
