Session Objectives: Assess the relationship between knowledge, perceived risk, and influenza vaccine uptake in health science students. Identifying risk factors related to age, sex, and underlying health conditions should be considered when planning influenza vaccination and treatment strategies. Identify factors that are related with vaccination uptake among healthcare workers.
