Allison Hoff (right), a pharmacy supervisor at CVPH Medical Center, administers a flu vaccine to Jennifer Soucia, who works at the hospital as a registered nurse, recently at CVPH in an effort to protect staff and, in turn, visitors from the influenza virus this season. More than 1,600 health-care workers had been vaccinated, and those who choose not to receive the shot are mandated by the New York State Department of Health to wear masks around patients.
