The Influence of Hispanic Ethnicity and Nativity Status on 2009 H1N1 Pandemic Vaccination Uptake in the United States.


:Previous research suggests Hispanic vaccination rates for H1N1 were similar to non-Hispanic whites. These previous estimates do not take into account nativity status. Using the 2010 National Health Interview Survey, we estimate adult H1N1 vaccination rates for non-Hispanic whites (n = 8780), U.S.-born Hispanics (n = 1142), and foreign-born Hispanics (n = 1912). To test Fundamental Cause Theory, we estimate odds of H1N1 vaccination while controlling for flexible resources (e.g., educational and economic capital), ethnicity, and nativity status. Foreign-born Hispanics experienced the lowest rates of H1N1 vaccination (15%), followed by U.S.-born Hispanics (18%) and non-Hispanic whites (21%). Regression models show odds of H1N1 vaccination did not differ among these three groups after controlling for sociodemographic characteristics. Insufficient access to flexible resources and healthcare coverage among foreign-born Hispanics was responsible for relatively low rates of H1N1 vaccination. Addressing resource disparities among Hispanics could increase vaccination uptake in the future, reducing inequities in disease burden.
