The aim of the study is to assess the attitude to influenza prevention among medical students. Material and Methods. The survey of first-year students of Saratov State Medical University n.a. V. I. Razumovsky was conducted (n=110). Results included an analysis of the prevalence of different influenza prevention methods. We have identified the main causes of failures of specific influenza prevention and identified the most common ways of non-specific prevention. Conclusion. Despite the fact that the majority of students consider it necessary to carry out specific prevention of influenza, active immunization is used only by 15% of the surveyed students. Others prefer the methods of nonspecific prophylaxis of influenza.
