Abstract

The pandemic influenza vaccination coverage in children with type 1 diabetes has been analyzed. A total of 1,461 charts have been reviewed (788 M and 673 F, ages 13.0 ± 4.1 y, disease duration 6.0 ± 4.8 y, HbA1c 7.9 ± 1.2%). Among them, 428 patients (29.3%) underwent A/H1N1 vaccination. A special effort is required to implement an increased immunization rate.
