- •Past influenza illness significantly increased participants' risk for influenza.
- •Forty-one percent of influenza-positive patients and 11% of negative controls had prior influenza.
- •Hepatitis A (less threat) vaccine was accepted more than influenza vaccines.
- •Perceived lack of need (most common reason for underutilization) may have validity.
