Title

Disparities in Influenza Vaccinations Among Community Pharmacy Patients and Non-Community Pharmacy Respondents

Abstract Summary

The 2009 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey was analyzed. The sample consisted of respondents aged 50 years or older, as per the 2009 recommendations by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Bivariate analyses and multivariate logistic regression were conducted to examine the influenza vaccination rates and disparities in receiving influenza vaccinations within past year between non-Hispanic Whites (Whites), non-Hispanic Blacks (Blacks) and Hispanics. The influenza vaccination rates between community pharmacy patients and non-community pharmacy respondents were also examined. The Andersen’s Behavioral Model of Health Services Utilization was used as the theoretical framework for this study.
