Influenza Prevention in Facilities

A team of nationally recognized long-term care researchers from Brown University and Insight Therapeutics are undertaking a large-scale quality improvement study to evaluate the impact of the annual influenza vaccine choice on long-term care facility residents’ hositalization risk for the 2019-2010 influenza season.

Nursing homes that meet eligibility and agree to participate will be allocated to one of two CDC-recommended influenza vaccines for adults. Nursing homes will receive a supply of vaccine for all nursing home residents and staff at no cost and add to the body of knowledge about influenza prevention in the frail nursing home population.
