Coming up next week ribbon and certificate of achievement from Minnesota MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS Health Commissioner Edward Ehlinger for its efforts. The FluSafe program aims to get 100 percent of all health care personnel at hospitals and nursing homes in Minnesota, except those with medical exemptions, vaccinated against influenza each season. According to state health officials, unvac- cinated health care workers can pass highly contagious influenza to their patients, many of whom are at high risk for complications from influenza. "Our patients' health is our first priority. Protecting them from influenza just makes sense," said Stacy Barstad, CEO Sanford Westbrook Medical Center. "We also want all of our employees to be as healthy as possible during flu season. We will be working hard in the coming years to improve our influ- enza vaccination rate among employees." "We're extremely pleased with the number of facili- ties that participated in the program this year," said Kristen Ehresmann, direc- tor of the Infectious Disease Epidemiology Prevention and Control Division at MDH. "We're making progress in getting more health care workers vaccinated. Even among those facilities that didn't reach 70 percent, many showed significant improve- ment in their coverage rates." Under the FluSafe pro- gram, health care facilities receive guidance and access to tools and promotional materials from MDH and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help them increase their rates. The facilities record and document their vaccinations through MDH's electronic immunization information system (MIIC). More information on the FluSafe program, including a list of the 2012-13 facilities earning blue, red and white ribbons, can be found on the MDH web site at mdhflu. com.
