More Americans Are Getting Their Flu Shot

Americans aren’t taking any chances on flu season, since more intend to get the vaccine this year.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of American Adults intend to get a flu shot this year, up from 56% a year ago  and up a point from the previous all-time high of 58% reached in 2014. Thirty-four percent (34%) still don’t intend to get a flu shot this year, down from 38% a year ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
