Lancaster General Health

Lancaster General Health is committed to the safety of our patients, employees and community. To further enhance our safety practices, in 2012 we joined other hospitals and health systems across Pennsylvania and the nation in establishing a mandatory influenza (flu) vaccination program for all healthcare personnel.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza causes an estimated 226,000 hospital admissions and 36,000 deaths each year. Research has found the only way to improve compliance, and meet CDC safety recommendations, is to mandate immunization.

LG Health is proud to participate in this effort which reinforces our dedication to keeping our community safe.
