The #hitmewithyourflushot event has two goals:
• To ensure the organization vaccinates as many eligible employees who are on duty that day as possible.
• To test the organization’s ability to respond to a mass vaccination situation.
The one-day event replaces the week-long “flu blitzes” of previous years. Although there will be other dates for health care workers to get vaccinated if they are not working Oct.11, the goal is to vaccinate all eligible employees who are on duty that day.
