    Abstract

    Children with neurologic disorders are at high risk for influenza-associated complications. We identified 184,460 children 1-17 years with neurologic disorders and 204,966 siblings in a commercial insurance claims database from July 2006-June 2014. Among children with neurologic disorders, coverage increased from 22.4% in 2006-07 to 42.3% in 2013-14, but remained suboptimal. A lower proportion of siblings were vaccinated.
