Abstract

Background

Data on influenza vaccine effectiveness (IVE) against mortality is limited, with no Australian data to guide vaccine uptake. We aimed to assess IVE against influenza-related mortality in Australian hospitalized patients; assess residual confounding in the association between influenza vaccination and mortality; and assess whether influenza vaccination reduces the severity of influenza illness.
