way to prevent flu."

"Previous research has shown that the advice of a health care professional is an important factor in a patient's decision to get vaccinated against influenza. Since many people will have to be vaccinated against more than one kind of virus this year, communication between patients, parents and health care professionals will be essential," added Dr. Baker.

In an effort to encourage more discussion between pediatricians and parents about influenza immunization as a measure of preventive health, NFID is asking health care professionals to sign and display a statement showing their commitment to seasonal influenza vaccination. Called the Health Care Professionals' Influenza Vaccination Commitment, it lets patients know that their health care professional strongly recommends annual flu vaccination. It provides the official recommendations on flu vaccination from the CDC, and encourages patients to ask for vaccination. The statement is available at www.PreventChildhoodInfluenza.org/proxy.

About the Survey

The telephone survey of 500 mothers in the United States was conducted by Opinion Research Company August 19 - 25, 2009. The survey was sponsored by the National Foundation of Infectious Diseases (NFID) as part of its efforts to focus on pediatric influenza. To qualify, respondents had to have children six months through 18 years of age living with them in their household. The survey was designed to examine mothers' knowledge and attitudes about seasonal influenza and vaccination. The margin of error is 4.4 percent for the entire sample.
