An epidemic of influenza may disable a significant number of workers in an industrial plant and seriously curtail its operation. At present, vaccination offers the only means of offsetting these consequences. Since acceptability of the vaccine dictates the amount of its use in a civilian population, this factor must be considered along with the protective effect of the vaccine in evaluating the degree of success in a program of control. Accordingly, it was of interest to investigate two occurrences of influenza A2 in an industrial population that had been offered influenza immunization on an annual basis since 1957.
