Abstract

This study used hierarchical linear modeling to determine the relative contribution of hospital policies and state laws to healthcare worker (HCW) influenza vaccination rates. Hospital mandates with consequences for noncompliance and race were associated with 3%–12% increases in HCW vaccination; state laws were not significantly related to vaccination rates.
