2019 BRFSS Survey Results: North Carolina Regions

Immunization

A new flu shot came out in 2011 that injects vaccine into the skin with a very small needle. It is called Fluzone Intradermal vaccine.
This is also considered a flu shot.

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

and earlier years.
