This study aimed to assess vaccination coverage for novel influenza A (H1N1) in Korea using a immunization registry system as the data source. Vaccination coverage was found to be 26.1% for the total population and 54.4% for priority groups targeted by a national vaccination campaign between October 27, 2009, to March 31, 2010. The factors associated with increased coverage were rapid vaccination and free vaccination; these factors may need to be considered in future pandemics.
