Immunization-MALES

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?

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.
