IntroductionA multifaceted intervention to raise influenza vaccination rates was tested among children with asthma.MethodsIn a pre/post study design, 18 primary care practices implemented the 4 Pillars Immunization Toolkit along with other strategies. The primary outcome was the difference in influenza vaccination rates at each practice among children with asthma between the baseline year (before the intervention) and at the end of year 2 (after the intervention), both overall and by race (White vs. non-White).ResultsInfluenza vaccination rates increased significantly in 13 of 18 practices. The percentage of vaccinated non-White children increased from 46% to 61% (p < .01), and the percentage of vaccinated White children increased from 58% to 65% (p < .001). Likelihood of vaccination was significantly lower for non-White children before the intervention (odds ratio = 0.66; 95% confidence interval = 0.59-0.73; p < .001), but this difference was eliminated after the intervention (odds ratio = 0.95; 95% confidence interval = 0.85-1.05; p = .289).DiscussionA multi-strategy, evidence-based intervention significantly increased influenza vaccination uptake and reduced racial disparities among children with asthma.
