Saint Elizabeth Exceeds Flu Vaccination Goal


Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center, Lincoln, Neb., achieved a 94 percent influenza vaccination rate among associates with a football-themed campaign called “Game On!” The campaign began with a “Breakfast of Champions” presentation and vaccinations for Saint Elizabeth’s leaders. As departments throughout Saint Elizabeth organized to reach vaccination rates of 90 to 100 percent, a large football field poster displayed the campaign’s progress in terms of “yards gained.” The final vaccination rate among Saint Elizabeth’s associates exceeded the goal of 90 percent.
