Abstract

We conducted a study to examine the knowledge, attitudes, and opinions of health care workers (HCWs) and the factors associated with receipt of influenza vaccination in HCWs during August 2015 in 3 hospitals in Jiangsu Province, China. Among the 173 doctors and 220 nurses included in this study, the proportions who received vaccination for the 2014-2015 season were 14% and 13%, respectively. Ninety-eight percent of doctors and 99% of nurses maintained their vaccination practice over 4 seasons.
