État des lieux de la vaccination antigrippale chez les étudiants sages-femmes de France

Abstract : Introduction: Midwifery students have the opportunity to get vaccinated against influenza every year before the winter epidemic. The main goal is to protect the “frail” population, with whom students are in regular contact (pregnant women). This work’s aim was to study the prevalence of this practice, as well as the obstacles to its execution. Method: This is a descriptive observational study carried out among all midwifery students from France, enrolled in one of the 35 schools for the year 2018-2019. Results: Among the 1092 questionnaires received, 47.9% of the students were vaccinated that year, mainly in order to protect their patients. For those who had not been vaccinated, the main obstacles were a lack of time (64.7%), an ineffective vaccine (57.3%) and forgetting to be vaccinated (43.4%). Discussion: Most student reported that a school-based vaccination session would be effective in improving coverage. To do vaccination was associated with the opinion of the student's entourage and information received in class. The mistrust and fear of student midwives about this vaccination were highlighted. Conclusion: Midwifery students are free to choose influenza vaccination, although the objectives of vaccine protection have not yet been achieved. Students should nevertheless benefit from all the information necessary to make their decision, including education on this subject.
