NOTES: Data are for the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Estimates are based on two questions: “During the past 12 months, have you had a flu shot?” A flu shot is usually given in the fall and protects against influenza for the flu season. Beginning in September 2003, respondents were asked about influenza vaccination by nasal spray (sometimes called by the brand name FluMist™) during the past 12 months, in addition to the question regarding the flu shot. Starting with 2005 data, receipt of nasal spray or flu shot were included in the calculation of influenza vaccination estimates. Respondents were also asked “Have you ever had a pneumonia shot?” This shot is usually given only once or twice in a person’s lifetime and is different from the flu shot. It is also called pneumococcal vaccine. Annual influenza vaccination has been recommended for all adults 50 years of age and over since 2000, and pneumococcal vaccination has been recommended for all adults 65 years of age and over since 1997. Due to the shortfall in the 2000–2001 and 2004–2005 influenza vaccine supplies, CDC recommended vaccine be reserved for priority groups including those 65 years of age and over and those 2–64 years with chronic underlying health conditions.
