Intensified infection prevention (IP) and health care personnel (HCP) vaccination programs could enhance HCP safety during COVID-19 pandemic. A multi-center survey regarding on intensified IP practices and vaccination uptake among HCP was performed. Working in the emergency medicine department was associated with wearing a double mask and face shield (P = .04). Despite having more confidence in care of COVID-19 patients, there was no significant improvement of intensified IP practices, COVID-19 and influenza vaccination programs among “high-risk” HCP.
