The percentage of US health care personnel being vaccinated against influenza has increased over the past 2 flu seasons.

A recent report in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicated that 72% of health care personnel, including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and some nonclinical personnel, were vaccinated during the 2012-2013 season. In comparison, 63.5% were immunized in 2010-2011 and 66.9% received the vaccine in 2011-2012.
