ABSTRACT
This is an original study investigating the effect of mass-media information on the population during the epidemic of influenza in 2009. Anxiety was assessed by the STAI questionnaire on a group of 40 subjects divided into two: study sub-group and controls. We also used a structure interview looking for the reaction of the subjects to prevention and the attitude induced by mass-media. Our data show that anxiety increases with age in both groups. Anxiety depends on the exposition to mass-media information. However, this is not accompanied by the positive attitude toward vaccination for virus A (H1N1). This attitude is due to an incongruity between the scientific coordination of the flu prevention and the deficient communication about the A(H1N1) flu and its prevention.
