Flu Vaccination Awareness Takes Center Stage this Week
December 4, 2012
This week is Flu Vaccination Awareness Week, and the AARC wants to remind everyone that there is no better health care professional to educate patients and fellow staff about the importance of getting the annual flu vaccine than a respiratory therapist.
As a key clinician involved in the care of people with respiratory conditions, you have the unique opportunity to help your patients and the people you work with understand how the flu is transmitted and why getting the flu vaccine is the best defense.
For more on getting the message across to your fellow health care workers, check out the information on this site for health professionals. You can find lots of information geared for the general public here.
