2017 BRFSS Survey Results: Local Health Director Region 3 & 5 Demographics

Immunization

Now I will ask you questions about the flu vaccine. There are two ways to get the flu vaccine, one is a shot in the 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 flu shot or a flu vaccine
that was sprayed in your nose?
