About the Book

Results. Multivariate logistic analysis demonstrated that high levels of physician knowledge about maternal vaccination, positive attitudes towards influenza vaccination, and increased age were associated with physicians recommending influenza vaccine to pregnant women.Background. Pregnant women are at elevated risk of influenza-related complications. Limited research has been done to examine barriers to maternal influenza vaccination. We surveyed physicians and patients' knowledge and attitudes to vaccination during pregnancy.Methods. The study was carried out as 2 cross-sectional surveys, one of obstetrical care providers and one of postpartum patients.Multivariate logistic analysis demonstrated that high levels of patient knowledge about maternal vaccination, positive attitudes towards influenza vaccination, and physicians' recommendation for vaccine were associated with being vaccinated during pregnancy.Conclusion. Provider recommendation was found to be an important element to increase vaccination rates. More definitive data on vaccine safety and clarity regarding responsibility for providing vaccine are needed to increase vaccination rates.
