Influenza vaccination levels among persons aged > or =65 years and among persons aged 18-64 years with high-risk conditions--United States, 2003.

Abstract

Influenza vaccination is an effective tool for preventing hospitalization and death among persons aged > or =65 years and among persons aged 18-64 years with medical conditions that increase the risk for influenza-related complications. Two national health objectives for 2010 are to increase influenza vaccination coverage to 90% among persons aged > or =65 years and to 60% among persons aged 18-64 years who have one or more high-risk conditions (objectives 14-29a and 14-29c, respectively). To determine influenza vaccination coverage among persons in both targeted groups, CDC analyzed data from the 2003 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which determined that influenza vaccination coverage among persons aged > or =65 years and persons aged 18-64 years with high-risk conditions remains substantially below 2010 target levels. In addition, racial/ethnic disparities in coverage levels persist in both targeted populations. To improve overall influenza vaccination coverage and reduce racial/ethnic disparities, combinations of evidence-based effective interventions should be implemented, and the influenza vaccine supply should be stabilized.
