Abstract

Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all healthcare personnel (HCP). During 2010-2011, a cross-sectional design was used to survey 372 parents of hospitalized children regarding their influenza vaccination perceptions. Independent of their feelings regarding vaccine safety and efficacy, 76% of parents felt that annual influenza vaccination should be required for HCP.
