Experimental: Intervention Group Year 1
The 4 Pillars Immunization Toolkit along with donated vaccines for early season vaccination, staff education and support.
Behavioral: 4 Pillars Immunization Toolkit
Pillar 1: Convenient Vaccination Services; Pillar 2: Patient notification about the importance of vaccination and availability of convenient services; Pillar 3: Enhanced Office Systems; Pillar 4: Motivation: Office immunization champion tracks progress towards a goal; Early delivery of donated vaccines for disadvantaged children, staff education, support of effort by research staff.
No Intervention: Control Group Year 1
Control sites will not receive assistance with increasing influenza vaccination in Year 1, they will follow guidelines for usual care.
- Primary Outcome [ Time Frame: 3/1/2011-2/29/2012 ]Influenza vaccination rates in each arm at the end of year 1
- Effectiveness Score [ Time Frame: End of February 2012 ]Two staff members from each site were surveyed as to usefulness/effectiveness of a list of strategies recommended in the toolkit to increase vaccination rates. Values (range = 1-100 with 1 being not at all effective and 100 being highly effective) were averaged and used as an effectiveness score for each strategy. The average value for each site was combined with all sites and averaged for each strategy. (actual range = 20.6-90.7).
