Flu Vaccine clinical trials at University of California Health

4 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Patient Portal Flu Vaccine Reminders (5)

    open to eligible people ages 6 months and up

    This trial is taking place in Los Angeles, CA at clinics within the UCLA Health System. The study design is a 2x2 nested factorial design. Patients will be randomized into 1) receiving text based reminder messages with direct scheduling link, 2) portal-based reminder messages with direct scheduling link, or 3) the control group. Patients randomized to the intervention arms will receive reminders if they are due for influenza vaccine. Nested within the portal reminder arm, we will have two additional components for which patients will be randomized separately: 1. A pre-commitment prompt, asking patients which time (September, October, November or December) and which place (UCLA, pharmacy, workplace or school, or other) they plan to get their Influenza vaccine with tailored monthly messages based on responses (pre-commitment message with tailored recall messages with direct scheduling vs. standard portal reminders with direct scheduling). 2. A pre-appointment reminder encouraging patients to ask for their influenza vaccine at their upcoming appointment (pre-appointment reminder encouraging influenza vaccination vs. standard pre-appointment reminder not mentioning influenza vaccination) Nested within the text message reminder arm, we will have one additional component for which patients will be randomized separately: 1) A pre-appointment reminder encouraging patients to ask for their influenza vaccine at their upcoming appointment (pre-appointment reminder encouraging influenza vaccination vs. standard pre-appointment reminder not mentioning influenza vaccination) Despite the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation in 2010 that all people above 6 months of age should receive an annual flu vaccine, vaccination rates remain low: at 6m-4.9 yrs. (70%), 5-17.9 yrs. (56%), 18-64.9 yrs. (38%), and >65 yrs. (63%). The investigators will assess the effectiveness of MyChart R/R messages and text R/R messages as compared to the standard of care control (no messages).

  • Patient Portal Flu Vaccine Reminders_RCT 5 (LADHS)

    open to eligible people ages 6 months and up

    This trial is taking place in Los Angeles, CA at clinics within the Los Angeles Department of Health clinics. The study design is a comparative effectiveness trial design. Patients will be randomized into 1) receiving enhanced texting with a callback by a trained call-center staff member to schedule a vaccine visit if the patient presses "1" in response to the text, 2) receiving enhanced bidirectional texting with a texting response from a trained call-center staff member who will help the patient schedule a vaccine visit through a series of back-and-forth texts, or 3) standard text reminders (control group). Patients in all arms will receive reminders if they are due for influenza vaccine. Despite the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation in 2010 that all people above 6 months of age should receive an annual flu vaccine, vaccination rates remain low: at 6m-4.9 yrs. (70%), 5-17.9 yrs. (56%), 18-64.9 yrs. (38%), and >65 yrs. (63%). The investigators will assess the effectiveness of enhanced text R/R messages as compared to the standard of care control (standard text reminders).

  • High Dose Flu Vaccine in Treating Children Who Have Undergone Donor Stem Cell Transplant

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II randomized trial studies how well high dose flu vaccine works in treating children who have undergone done stem cell transplant. Higher dose flu vaccine may build a better immune response and may provide better protection against the flu than the standard vaccine.

  • Patient Portal Flu Vaccine Reminders_RCT 4

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This trial is taking place in Los Angeles, CA at clinics within the UCLA Health System. The study design is a 2x2 nested factorial design. Patients will be randomized into 1) receiving text based reminder messages, 2) portal-based reminder messages or 3) the control group. Patients randomized to the intervention arms will receive reminders if they are due for influenza vaccine. Nested within the reminder arms (text or portal), we will have 2 additional components for which patients will be randomized separately: - A direct scheduling link within the reminder letter enabling the patient to schedule an influenza vaccine only visit (direct scheduling link vs. no direct scheduling link). - A pre-appointment reminder, encouraging patients to ask for their influenza vaccine at their upcoming appointment (pre-appointment reminder encouraging influenza vaccination vs. standard pre-appointment reminder not mentioning influenza vaccination) Despite the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation in 2010 that all people above 6 months of age should receive an annual flu vaccine, vaccination rates remain low: at 6m-4.9 yrs. (70%), 5-17.9 yrs. (56%), 18-64.9 yrs. (38%), and >65 yrs. (63%). The investigators will assess the effectiveness of MyChart R/R messages and text R/R messages as compared to the standard of care control (no messages).
