Abstract

We present nationally representative estimates regarding awareness of government vaccination recommendations for seasonal and 2009 H1N1 influenza among US adults for whom such vaccinations are specifically recommended. We also show how awareness varies based on interactions with health care providers. Despite comprehensive media coverage of the H1N1 pandemic, awareness of government influenza vaccination recommendations among adults is low. Provider-based vaccination counseling may help increase adults' awareness of federal vaccination recommendations.
