Hello AnneSeveral years ago legal counsel at another medical center in NH indicated that placing a sticker on an ID badge for flu vaccination was not a great idea since this is a public acknowledgment of individual medical information and could be challenged as a HIPAA violation regardless of facility policies.Just a thought.Deb Sampson Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
