Abstract: A health belief survey of 70 community-dwelling Chinese older people was carried out in five general outpatient clinics in the Kowloon East hospital cluster of Hong Kong. Subjects were asked about their susceptibility to influenza, their perceptions of its severity, and benefits of and barriers to vaccination. Beliefs in their own good health, the effectiveness of cultural measures adopted to prevent influenza and its curability may be among the reasons why those who decline the vaccination thought they were unlikely to catch the virus. Community nurses should help modify people's health beliefs to motivate them to take up vaccination.
