2013 BRFSS Survey Results: Eastern North Carolina**

Immunization

During the past 12 months, have you had either a seasonal flu shot or a seasonal flu vaccine
that was sprayed in your nose?

(NOTE: A new flu shot came out in 2011 that injects vaccine into the skin with a very small needle. It is called
Flu zone Intradermal vaccine. This is also considered a flu shot.)

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2013
are NOT comparable to 2010 and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2013 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.
