    Article - En anglais

    Study objective

    To determine the feasibility of immunizing unvaccinated elderly patients with influenza and pneumococcal vaccines in the emergency department.

    Participants and setting

    A convenience sample of elderly patients presenting to an urban university-affiliated ED.

    Design and interventions

    Elderly ED patients were asked about prior influenza and pneumococcal immunization.

    Nonimmunized patients were given information sheets, were informed of the charges for vaccination, and were asked if they desired immunization as part of their ED care.

    Those desiring immunization who lacked contraindications were immunized.


    One hundred thirty-three patients were enrolled.
