For the 2011-2012 influenza season, the influenza vaccination rate of California hospital healthcare personnel was 68 percent.
According to Marx, if 90 percent of California healthcare personnel were vaccinated - the goal set by the federal government's Healthy People 2020 initiative - there would be about 30,000 fewer cases of influenza-like illness in California.
Influenza-like illness causes more than 200,000 hospitalizations each year and, on average, 24,000 people die as a result, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Currently, vaccination is the single best way to prevent the flu.
Marx said: "It is critical that healthcare providers receive the flu vaccine since they come into contact with our most vulnerable community members."
