Background: Engaging young, healthy persons in primary prevention can be difficult. For example, vaccination remains the single best option for preventing influenza; however, only approximately 30% of adults aged 18 to 49 years receive the vaccine (1). Many factors contribute to this problem, but geographic accessibility, availability at convenient times, and perceived ease of vaccination may increase coverage (2–4). Because of these circumstances, pharmacies are increasingly important sites for vaccine distribution (1); nevertheless, many persons remain unvaccinated. New options for making influenza vaccination available might reach some persons who would otherwise go unvaccinated.
