I just returned from getting my flu shot and have to admire the way our employee health folks have set this up. Although the line looked long, it moved quickly. I had no actual "waiting" time, and from start to finish, spent about 8 minutes in the vicinity of the 6th floor auditorium.
I encourage all staff to get their flu shots, especially all staff who care for children.
All children who are six months old or older should also receive the flu shot--this one covers influenza A and B and H1N1. Some children less than 9 years of age need to receive two shots (4 weeks apart)--the American Academy of Pediatrics has an algorithm to help guide providers in determining how many shots should be administered to which children.
