Influenza is responsible for an estimated 300,000 hospitalizations and 23,000 deaths annually, the majority of which occur in elderly populations. Despite a physiologic vulnerability to this infection, every year millions of seniors do not receive the seasonal flu vaccine. This project set out to understand the myths surrounding influenza vaccinations in the elderly and to educate them on the different types of vaccines available.
