Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for health care personnel (HCP). The authors describe influenza vaccination coverage among HCP during the 2010-2011 season and present reported facilitators of and barriers to vaccination.

The authors enrolled HCP 18 to 65 years of age, working full time, with direct patient contact. Participants completed an Internet-based survey at enrollment and the end of influenza season. In addition to self-reported data, information about the 2010-2011 influenza vaccine from electronic employee health and medical records was collected.
