Influenza immunization among elderly is an important public health intervention to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and premature deaths, although its coverage varies globally. In order to identify non-vaccinating subgroups, the use of socio-economic deprivation indices has been proposed. Deprivation indices have the advantage of describing socio-economic status taking into account several dimensions, while remaining synthetic and easily interpretable. The objective of this work was to perform a systematic review of studies investigating the association between deprivation indices and anti-influenza vaccine coverage in the elderly population.

Abstract

Influenza immunization among elderly is an important public health intervention to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and premature deaths, although its coverage varies globally. In order to identify non-vaccinating subgroups, the use of socio-economic deprivation indices has been proposed. Deprivation indices have the advantage of describing socio-economic status taking into account several dimensions, while remaining synthetic and easily interpretable. The objective of this work was to perform a systematic review of studies investigating the association between deprivation indices and anti-influenza vaccine coverage in the elderly population.
