  Purpose

To assess the acceptance of the Fluzone Intradermal (ID)vaccine in adults and vaccine administrators in the United States. Patients completed 2 surveys, one immediately post-vaccination and one seven days later, that documented demographics and assessed their injection pain, injection anxiety, speed of injection, overall satisfaction, and preference for next year's vaccine. Vaccine administrators completed one survey assessing ease of vaccine preparation and administration, time required to administer, and safety/risk of needle stick injury for patient and administrator.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall patient satisfaction with intradermal vaccine [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall patient satisfaction was assessed immediately post-vaccination and seven days later by patient survey.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall satisfaction with the Fluzone ID vaccine by vaccine administrators [ Time Frame: seven days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Vaccine administrators (#8)completed a survey rating the ID vaccine in comparison to the IM vaccine in terms of ease of vaccine preparation, time required to administer the vaccine, and safety/needle stick risk for patients and administrators.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Overall satisfaction with the Fluzone ID vaccine in two cohort groups [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using a survey tool, patients receiving the Fluzone ID vaccine were separated into 2 groups: 1) those that reported receiving the IM influenza vaccine in the past 3 years; and 2) those that reported not receiving the IM influenza vaccine in the past 3 years. All subject's satisfaction was assessed by survey immediately post-vaccination and 7 days later. Survey responses were compared between the 2 groups. The group that reported receiving the IM influenza vaccine in the past 3 years was asked to compare their experience with the ID vaccine in comparison to the IM vaccine.

Groups/Cohorts
IM vaccine in the past 3 years
Those subjects that received the Fluzone ID influenza vaccine, and reported having received the IM influenza vaccine in the past three years.
no IM vaccine in the past 3 years
Patients that received the Fluzone ID vaccine and reported not receiving the IM influenza vaccine in the past 3 years.
vaccine administrators
Those experienced vaccine administrators that administered the Fluzone ID vaccine, and were then surveyed concerning safety and overall satisfaction with the ID vaccine in comparison to the IM vaccine.

Detailed Description:

Patients were divided into two groups: 1) those that reported receiving the intramuscular (IM) influenza vaccine in the past 3 years; and 2) those that reported not receiving the IM influenza vaccine in the past 3 years. The survey responses were compared between the two groups. In addition, the subjects that reported receiving the IM vaccine in the past 3 years were asked to compare their experience with the IM vaccine versus the ID vaccine.
