Immunization

Now I will ask you questions about seasonal flu. A flu shot is an influenza vaccine injected in your arm
and the other is a spray, mist, or drop in the nose called FluMist.

During the past 12 months, have you had either a seasonal flu shot or flu vaccine spray?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2012 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2012 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
