QUIAN, Jorge et al. Cobertura de vacunación antigripal en niños de Montevideo (año 2006). Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.4, pp.257-261. ISSN 1688-1249.

In Uruguay, free-of-charge vaccination against influenza has been recommended since 2004. The objective of this study was to determine the percentage of vaccinated children aged from 6 to 23 months Methodology: it was a descriptive study surveying the parents of children aged from 6 to 23 months in the vaccination period. Results: 126 (30,4%) of 414 children received the vaccine. The most important reason was the pediatrician's prescription in 106 (84,1%); the lack of such recommendation was the most important reason for failing to do so: 147 (51,0%). Conclusions: the vaccination percentage is very low. Awareness should be raised in order to improve vaccination compliance and to achieve a better coverage.
