Sort Through Influenza Vaccine Options for 2018-19
You'll see more focus on flu vaccines for 2018-2019...on the heels of last year's severe flu season.
Expect to dispense flu vaccine now...and to continue as long as flu is circulating. Flu season can start as early as October...and it takes about two weeks for antibodies that protect against flu to develop after vaccination.
If you stock flu vaccine in fridges on patient care units, ensure there's an adequate supply...to prevent delays or missed opportunities to vaccinate.
