Published: Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012 1:15 a.m. CDT

STERLING – CGH Medical Center is one of 32 hospitals in Illinois publicly reporting the percentage of employees who have been immunized for the seasonal flu.

This is part of a flu reporting project developed by Quality Quest for Health of Illinois that started in 2009. Visit www.qualityquest.org for hospitals’ employee immunization numbers for the 2012-13 flu season.

The report will be updated monthly through March. An interactive map allows visitors to search for participating hospitals by county.

The gold standard for vaccination is 95 percent for health care workers.
