Neighborhood Influences on Seasonal Influenza Vaccination among Older African Americans in Atlanta, Georgia: This study reveals direct and distal effects of neighborhood and individual-level factors that may influence vaccination decisions in communities. The findings reveal that older age, perceptions of neighborhood security, health insurance, vehicle availability, and positive attitudes toward vaccinations, had a role in influenza vaccination decisions among older African Americans. Thus, the findings can inform possible socio structural interventions to improve vaccination access for this highly vulnerable population.

Influenza vaccination coverage in the US is lower than the recommended Healthy People 2020 threshold, especially among older African Americans. This analysis explores the complex relationship among neighborhood-level factors, socio behavioral influences, and influenza vaccination outcomes among older African Americans.

The influenza vaccine is a yearly vaccine that protects you from getting the flu, a viral respiratory illness that spreads very easily. The flu can lead to serious health complications and possibly death.

Many studies have explored factors influencing vaccination uptake, including delay and refusal reasoning. However, most have focused on childhood influenza immunization and issues pertaining to influenza acceptance, delay, and refusal among special populations such as pregnant women. Fewer have focused on the factors contributing to older populations’ acceptance of influenza vaccines, and issues concerning disparities arising from under immunization of racially and ethnically diverse populations [27-29]. Moreover, there is scant evidence beyond individual knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs to account for influencers of vaccine uptake and immunization intentions reported in this specific group (Older African groups).
