More Consumers Likely To Get Flu Shot This Season

A new online survey from CVS Health found that 1-in-5, or 22%, of consumers who didn’t get a flu vaccine last year say that knowing that flu levels last year were the highest since 2009 makes them more likely to get vaccinated this year.

Among the 27% of parents of children under 18 whose child did not get the flu vaccine last year, 26% said they are more likely to get their child vaccinated this year after learning about last year’s high flu levels.

The annual flu survey, conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CVS Pharmacy in July 2018 among over 2,000 U.S. adults ages 18+, also found that two-thirds of those surveyed get a flu vaccine every year, or plan to get one this year, a 5% increase from last year’s survey findings.   MORE
