Abstract

In 2005, employees and physicians of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario were surveyed about their experiences with and receipt of the 2003-2004 influenza vaccination. With a 29% response rate, 91% of respondents stated that they had received the 2003-2004 vaccine, and physicians were the most likely to have done so (97.2%). Using logistic regression, the only factor significantly predictive of whether an employee or physician received the vaccine was whether they had awareness of a previous formal influenza immunization campaign.
