    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Despite recommendations for annual vaccination against influenza, more than half of elderly Americans do not receive this vaccine.

    In a serial cohort study, we assessed the efficacy and cost effectiveness of influenza vaccine administered to older persons living in the community.

    Methods

    Using administrative data bases, we studied men and women over 64 years of age who were enrolled in a large health maintenance organization in the Minneapolis-St.

    Paul area.

    We examined the rate of vaccination and the occurrence of influenza and its complications in each of three seasons : 1990-1991,1991-1992, and 1992-1993.

    Outcomes were adjusted for age, sex, diagnoses indicating a high risk, use of medications, and previous use of health care services.
