Virginia Mason's Flu Vaccine Distribution Strategy
Virginia Mason receives H1N1 vaccine in allotments from Public Health, which directs us to administer the doses to patients at high risk for illness and health-care staff who work in daily contact with patients who have influenza-like illness. To date, very small amounts of vaccine have been received.
We will continue to follow Public Health's directive by allocating a portion of each allotment among patients and staff until we have vaccinated the 3,500 VM front-line staff who have direct contact with our patients.
