We assessed the rates of influenza vaccine acceptance and the reasons for acceptance or refusal among medical residents in different disciplines during the 2004-2005 influenza season. Rates varied among disciplines; emergency department residents had the lowest acceptance rate (24%). The perception of a low risk of contracting influenza was the most common reason reported for vaccine refusal.
