RN Assisting With Flu Vaccine Clinics
Over the past years ARNPEI has received enquiries from Registered Nurses (RN) about “what they should know about giving flu vaccines outside their regular workplace.” For example a Registered Nurse may state, “I have been approached by a local physician/pharmacist/educational institution etc. to assist and to provide flu vaccines clinics in the office/organization.
