Abstract

We examined annual influenza vaccination and sick leave practices and perceptions among 627 health care workers (HCWs) in ambulatory care settings in King County, Washington using a self-report questionnaire. Most medical practitioners (85%), but fewer other HCWs (nurses, nurse's aides, allied health professionals, administrative; 55%-64%) reported receiving an annual influenza vaccination; only 31% of HCWs reported routinely taking sick leave for influenza-like illness.
