Abstract

For a healthcare worker seasonal influenza vaccination quality improvement project, interventions included support of leadership, distribution of vaccine kits, grand rounds, an influenza website, a screensaver, e-mails, phone messages, and audit feedback. Vaccination rates increased from 58.8% to 76.6% (P!.01). Quality improvement increased the voluntary vaccination rate but did not achieve a rate more than 80%.
