Flu Shot Update: Protect Yourself & Your Patients!

December 2, 2015 - The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has directed hospitals to achieve 90% vaccination of health care personnel with the 2015 - 2016 influenza vaccine. As of November 19, 2015, Lawrence General has achieved a 67% vaccination rate.

Please help us make it to 100% and get your flu shot today. Flu shots are available in Occupation Health and can also be administered  by a nursing supervisor during off shifts. Health care personnel who are not vaccinated will be required to wear a mask upon entering a patient room, a patient care area or within three feet of a patient.

The Flu Shot is the Best Protection Against the Flu
Flu activity usually peaks between January and March and, as long as the flu is circulating, it is not too late to get vaccinated.

According to the CDC, it is possible to infect others with the flu virus beginning 1 day before symptoms appear and up to 5-7 days after getting sick.
  • Ways to Fight the Flu
  • Get vaccinated.
  • Wash your hands often with warm, soapy water.
  • Cover your cough and sneeze.
  • Stay home if you have flu-like symptoms.
