Abstract

We surveyed healthcare workers (HCWs) about influenza vaccination and routine childhood vaccinations. We found that most HCWs' children received vaccinations, despite concerns regarding safety and efficacy. HCWs who received influenza vaccine were more likely to immunize their children against influenza, although a substantial proportion of HCWs' children did not receive influenza vaccination. © 2010 by The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
