In this study, we examined vaccination behaviors-single dose human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, triple dose HPV vaccination, and influenza vaccination-among Muslim women residing in the United States. Using logistic regression models, we analyzed self-reported survey. We found that respondents had lower rates of HPV vaccination and higher rates of influenza vaccination, relative to the general American population. The respondents in our sample who reported contraceptive use had higher odds of vaccination. In this study the authors provide a springboard for the enhancement of patient-centered care through better understanding of health behaviors and cultural preferences of underrepresented communities in research.

Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.
Vaccines used to prevent infection by viruses in the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE. It includes both killed or attenuated vaccines. The composition of the vaccines is changed each year in response to antigenic shifts and changes in prevalence of influenza virus strains. The vaccine is usually bivalent or trivalent, containing one or two INFLUENZAVIRUS A strains and one INFLUENZAVIRUS B strain.
