Abstract

Every year outbreaks of influenza infects approximately 10% of the population leading to high morbidity and mortality, especially in settings like health care facilities. Even when the influenza vaccination has been recommended for health care workers (HCWs), in order to protect vulnerable individuals and reduce transmission, the average coverage of vaccinated HCWs of the past years has only been 28.6% in European Union (EU) and 15% in Italy, probably due to the lack of trust in vaccines, propagated by the media.
