- The message still isn’t getting through to many Americans when it comes to the dangers associated with contracting the flu virus.
- A new survey from NORC at the University of Chicago shows that 41% of those surveyed have no plans to get a flu shot during another potentially deadly flu season.
- While many of the people saying they would get the flu shot tend to be the older and more vulnerable, many younger people don’t feel the flu is that big of a risk to them.
- At what age will the flu shot be a “must-have” shot?

According to a new NORC survey at the University of Chicago, most Americans have not yet received a flu shot and 41% say they do not plan to do so.
Shocking to me that 41% say they don’t plan to get a flu shot. It’s not just about protecting yourself- you could spread the flu to a child, senior, or person with cancer (like my wife) who can’t get a flu shot. Be a good citizen- get a #FluShot @CDCFlu https://t.co/sWyNx7IPZN
