The goal of this study was to identify areas in which an influenza immunization campaign for seniors, sponsored by a health maintenance organization (HMO), could be improved.
This study was conducted at Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound (GHC), serving approximately 470,000 enrollees in Washington State.
A survey was administered to two groups of seniors drawn at random those who received influenza vaccine and those who did not, during the fall and winter of 1991.
Immunization rates were almost 75 percent for « well » seniors and 85 percent for « chronically ill » seniors.
