Influenza Vaccine Intention After a Medically Attended Acute Respiratory Infection.


. Because influenza vaccine is given annually, adults must make a conscious decision to receive the vaccine each year. Understanding the factors related to vaccination behavior and intent can help shape interventions to improve influenza vaccination rates. A medical visit at the time of an acute respiratory illness, especially one in which the provider suspects influenza, as evidenced by an antiviral prescription, is an ideal opportunity to recommend influenza vaccine in the next season, to prevent a similar experience.
