With the flu season looming this fall, one long-term care group is recommending mandatory vaccinations for nursing home personnel.

The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, or AMDA, released its latest recommendations related to vaccines last week. The group noted that last year's flu season was “especially brutal” for the elderly, with frail seniors particularly vulnerable to the viral infection.
