Abstract
This project measures the influence of influenza vaccinations on Armenian Armed Forces personnel readiness. In the Republic of Armenia, neither the Ministry of Health nor the Military Medical Service of the Armed Forces conducts flu vaccinations. The flu is always highly prevalent in the Armenian Armed Forces personnel morbidity ranking. An analysis of flu morbidity data from 2006 to 2014 reveals how Armed Forces personnel readiness was affected. Preventive activities are likely beneficial in countries such as Armenia that have low economic development, where inpatient treatment costs are relatively low, where insurance companies and health care providers are still under development, and where population health care expenditures pose a heavy burden on the government. A cost-benefit analysis of the flu vaccination would assess whether conducting flu vaccination is expedient.
