  • Centralized IIS-based Reminder/Recall to Increase Childhood Influenza Vaccination Rates in New York State

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Despite U.S. guidelines for influenza vaccination of all children starting at age 6 months, only about half of children are vaccinated annually, leading to substantial influenza disease in children and spread of disease to adults. A major barrier is that families are not reminded about the need for their children to receive influenza vaccination. The investigators will evaluate the impact of patient reminder/recall performed by state immunization information systems to improve influenza vaccination rates by using three clinical trials in two states. The investigators will assess effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of phone reminder/recall on improving influenza vaccination rates. The investigators will disseminate the state immunization information system-based reminder/recall system to all states for use for seasonal and pandemic influenza vaccinations with the goal of lowering influenza morbidity.
