2013 BRFSS Survey Results: Western 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.)
