Licensing Flu Shot Study

The mailer will encourage all employees of one of Evive's partner companies to attend an on-site free flu shot clinic they are offering in the fall of 2011. The research will examine differences in follow-through on getting a flu shot at an on-site clinic among the targeted population during the ~1 month period when clinics are being offered (following the mailing) as a function of experimental condition.

  • Behavioral: Easy list of healthy habits
    The recipient will be prompted to check off "yes" or "no" to healthy habits that most people will find fairly easy.
  • Behavioral: Challenging list of healthy habits
    The recipient will be prompted to check off "yes" or "no" to healthy habits that most people will find fairly difficult.
  • Behavioral: Control
    No check box element
  • Experimental: Easy list of healthy habits
    In this condition, participants will be prompted to think about a list of healthy behaviors and check off (privately - they will never send this flyer back or show it to anyone) whether "yes" they conform to the healthy habit or "no" they do not. The list of healthy behaviors is a list that most people will find fairly easy, and thus most participants will answer "yes" to each habit. The final question will be a prompt to get a flu shot. The hope is that when people realize how healthy their habits are, it will seem natural to them to engage in yet another healthy habit and receive a flu shot.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Easy list of healthy habits
  • Experimental: Challenging list of healthy habits
    In this condition, participants will be prompted to think about a list of healthy behaviors and check off (privately - they will never send this flyer back or show it to anyone) whether "yes" they conform to the healthy habit or "no" they do not. The list of healthy behaviors is a list that most people will find fairly difficult, and thus most participants will answer "no" to each habit. The final question will be a prompt to get a flu shot. The hope is that when people realize how unhealthy their habits are, it will seem wise to engage in one healthy habit that is easy (to make up for other bad behaviors) and receive a flu shot.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Challenging list of healthy habits
  • Experimental: Control
    A control condition with no list of healthy behaviors.
