Influenza Vaccine

Receiving the appropriate vaccine to prevent the flu helps patients stay healthy after leaving the hospital.

This measure reports how often patients who were eligible for the influenza vaccine were provided with this immunization.

A high score is better than a low score.

NOTE: Influenza vaccination data is only captured during the first quarter (Jan-Mar) and fourth quarter (Oct-Dec) of the calendar year when the vaccination is typically given.  The most recent data for Cedars-Sinai is for Jan-Mar 2013 and shows a rate of 96%, which is well above the national average.
