Beginning October 17th, vaccines will be available at both the ED’s at LVH-M and LVH-17th. For services who will be attending their Yearly Skill Review Sessions at EMI, flu vaccines will also be available at that time. To access additional information regarding the flu vaccine or the flu vaccine consent form, see the EMS Influenza Information form in the quick links area to the right of this article. Each year thousands of people in the United States die from flu while many more are hospitalized. Flu vaccine is the best protection against flu and its complications. Flu vaccine also helps to prevent spreading flu from person to person.
