Abstract

Objective. To determine predictors of influenza virus vaccination status in children who are hospitalized during the influenza season. Methods. A cross-sectional study was conducted among children who were hospitalized with fever between 6 months and 3 years of age or with respiratory symptoms between 6 months and 18 years of age. The 1999 to 2000 influenzavaccination status of hospitalized children and potential factors that influence decisions to vaccinate were obtained from a questionnaire administered to parents/guardians. Results. Influenza vaccination rates for hospitalized children with and without high-risk medical conditions were 31% and 14%, respectively. For bothgroups of children, the vaccination status was strongly influenced by recommendations from physicians. More than 70% of children were vaccinated if aphysician had recommended the influenza vaccine, whereas only 3% were vaccinated if a physician had not. Lack of awareness that children can receive the influenza vaccine was a commonly cited reason for nonvaccination. Conclusions. A minority of hospitalized children with high-risk conditionshad received the influenza vaccine. However, parents' recalling that a clinician had recommended the vaccine had a positive impact on the vaccinationstatus of children.
