    The percentage of hospitals that require healthcare personnel (HCPs) to have annual influenza vaccinations has jumped dramatically in 4 years, according to national survey data.

    M. Todd Greene, PhD, MPH, from the Patient Safety Enhancement Program at the University of Michigan and the Veterans Affairs (VA) Ann Arbor Healthcare System and colleagues found that among all responding hospitals, the percentage that require annual influenza vaccinations for workers went from 37.1% in 2013 to 61.4% in 2017 (difference, 24.3%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 18.4%-30.2%; P < .001).
