Abstract

This study evaluated a hospital influenza immunization program for inpatients aged ≥65 years during the 2008-2009 influenza season. Of the 520 inpatients in this age group, 45.0% had documented eligibility screening and 23.1% received vaccination in the hospital. Staff and physicians participating in interviews felt that standardizing processes and improving documentation could help enhance the existing program.
