Flu Crew Nurse Jobs in WA
The term flu crew nurse refers to a variety of medical professionals who administer flu shots and other vaccinations, as well as those who assess individuals for vaccination needs, order vaccines for them, and educate employees about the importance of annual flu shots.
For companies that employ more than 50 people, these workers order vaccine stock and make sure vaccines are delivered to clinics on time so that all covered employees receive the annual vaccines. They may also work in a facility where only staff members who require backup vaccinations are vaccinated, or they may work to make sure that all employees—either in a specific department or for an entire company—receive the seasonal flu vaccine each year. They may also be responsible for educating medical staff on when and how to administer vaccines.
To work as a flu shot nurse, you must receive training and certification in administering injections. Flu shot nurses often work at hospitals, community centers, retail clinics, schools, corporations, health fairs, assisted-living facilities, and pop-up clinics. Skills that are important to flu shot nurses include the ability to work independently, outstanding customer service skills, and hospital experience.
