Inuenza is the sixth leading cause of death in adults in the UnitedStates. 20 percent of unprotected people will develop the u eachyear, raising the risk of transmitting the virus to others—includingto our patients and our own families.Pregnant women, the elderly and people with ongoing healthconditions are especially at risk.Flu immunization is the most effective way to prevent infection andcomplications, providing 70 percent to 90 percent protection.The Centers for Disease Control recommends u vaccination foreveryone over age six months and for all health care personnel.Research shows the following benets of immunization in healthyworking adults:
25 percent fewer upper respiratory infections;
43 percent fewer sick days taken;
44 percent fewer visits to physicians for respiratory infections;
Estimated cost savings of about $47 per person vaccinated.(Multiplied by thousands of KP workers, that’s money thatcan be used to serve our members and patients or reducethe cost of care.)
