Abstract

Mandatory influenza vaccination is associated with improved healthcare personnel vaccination rates, but institutional barriers to implementation and enforcement are reported. We explored barriers and facilitators to mandatory vaccination among a national sample of hospital administrators. Support from employees and administration were cited as key to the success of a mandate.
