KEY SENATE COMMITTEE MOVES FORWARD FLU SHOT LEGISLATION

Legislation that would require health care facilities to offer flu shots to their employees was approved by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.

The bill would require state licensed health care facilities including hospitals and nursing homes to establish and implement an annual influenza vaccination program.  Each facility would be required to provide either on- or off-site flu vaccinations for its health care workers, unless an employee provides documentation of current flu vaccinations or signs a written statement declining a vaccination.  The facilities would be required to maintain records of influenza vaccinations for each of its health care workers.
