Report on vaccination rates for MA hospitals for the 2009-2010 flu season

01.07.2011

Attached is the report on vaccination rates for MA hospitals for the 2009-2010 flu season.

Good results!! St V’s reports they attained a 103% vaccination rate last flu season. They were probably surprised to be outdone by Lawrence General which reported a 109% vaccination rate! So, MORE than 100% of all their possible personnel (employees, physicians, volunteers) got vaccinated.

This appears to be a case of Garrison Keillor’s Lake Woebegone—“where all the children are above average”.
