Influenza Vaccination for Parents and Other Caregivers in the Pediatric Medical Home
We hypothesize that when offered influenza vaccine at little or no cost, in a setting where the value of the vaccine is connected to one's high risk child, vaccination rates for parents will approach 90-95%, similar to rates obtained in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit environment.
