Abstract

We assessed the impact of free on-site influenza vaccination on childcare staff vaccination prevalence using 2 before-and-after studies. Vaccination was offered during the 2003-2004 and 2006-2007 influenza seasons. Staff vaccination prevalence was higher in each intervention season compared to the prior, nonintervention season. No baseline characteristics were associated with receipt of vaccination.
