Abstract

Immunization recommendations for healthcare personnel were updated in a 2011 report by the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The recommendations apply to all paid and unpaid persons working in healthcare settings who might come into contact with patients or infectious materials. The recommendations apply to all healthcare settings including persons who provide home healthcare and hospice.
