Sažetak
Aim To assess the reasons for low influenza vaccination
coverage in Poland, including knowledge of influenza and
attitudes toward influenza vaccination.
Methods This was a cross-sectional, anonymous, selfadministered survey in primary care patients in Lodzkie
voivodship (central Poland). The study participants were
adults who visited their primary care physicians for various
reasons from January 1 to April 30, 2007.
Results Six hundred and forty participants completed
the survey. In 12 months before the study, 20.8% participants had received influenza vaccination. The most common reasons listed by those who had not been vaccinated were good health (27.6%), lack of trust in vaccination
effectiveness (16.8%), and the cost of vaccination (9.7%).
The most common source of information about influenza
vaccination were primary care physicians (46.6%). Despite
reasonably good knowledge of influenza, as many as approximately 20% of participants could not point out any
differences between influenza and other viral respiratory
tract infections.
Conclusions The main reasons for low influenza vaccination coverage in Poland were patients’ misconceptions
and the cost of vaccination. Therefore, free-of-charge vaccination and more effective informational campaigns are
needed, with special focus on high-risk groups.
