2016 BRFSS Survey Results: Local Health Director Region 9 Demographics

Immunization

Now I will ask you questions about seasonal flu. A flu shot is an influenza vaccine injected in your 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 flu vaccine
that was sprayed in your nose?
