a Vaccination coverage in the 2017 season with respect to vaccination decision and respiratory diagnoses in the 2016 season. Because not all groups are of equal size, the horizontal black line indicates the weighted vaccination coverage of each age group. For (a), the confidence intervals are extremely small, and therefore not displayed, due to the large size of the groups (more than 10,000 individuals in each group). Similar patterns were observed in every pair of consecutive seasons from 2008 until 2017. b Boxplots of the Average Vaccination Rank by the number of vaccinations during the seasons 2008–2017. Every patient who became vaccinated at least once resides in exactly one boxplot. Each group consists of more than 4000 individuals. The higher the Average Vaccination Rank, the earlier the patient’s average vaccination timing within the season. These graphs show that an individual who becomes vaccinated more often also tends to do so at an earlier stage of the season, regardless of his or her age group
