More healthcare workers got flu shots this season

New York Times, April 13, 2010
Flu shots are recommended for all healthcare providers, but fewer than half get vaccinated in a typical flu season. But by mid-January, 62% of healthcare workers had received a seasonal flu shot, though only 37% had been vaccinated against the H1N1 swine flu, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are reporting. In addition, 34.7% of healthcare providers reported receiving both vaccines.
