Prior Vaccination and Effectiveness of Communication Strategies Used to Describe Infectious Diseases PDF Version[PDF – 318 KB – 3 pages]

Vaccinated were more likely than nonvaccinated participants to plan future vaccination, and future vaccination intent was greater with certain communication strategies. Using these findings to target communication may increase vaccination rates.
