The present study aimed to examine factors related to influenza vaccination intention among university students. A total of 629 valid self-administered questionnaires were collected from three universities in Taipei. The major findings were as follows. 1. University students had middle-high levels of perceived susceptibility, perceived seriousness of influenza, and middle levels of perceived benefits and self-efficacy of influenza vaccination. 2. University students' perceived susceptibility of influenza and self-efficacy was positively associated with influenza vaccination intention, while perceived barriers of influenza vaccination was negatively associated with influenza vaccination intention. 3. Perceived influenza susceptibility, influenza vaccination self-efficacy, receiving advices from family and friends, and searching online influenza information were significant associated with influenza vaccination intention. According to the results, it was suggested that schools and governments could strengthen influenza susceptibility messages, and e-health literacy to promote influenza vaccination. Parents and friends could discuss influenza vaccination with students.
