Survey finds many Americans haven’t received their flu shot yet this year

(NBC News) – Many people haven’t gotten a flu shot yet this season and many don’t plan on it.

That’s according to a new survey from the University of Chicago.

In a poll of 1,200 people nationwide, researchers found 41-percent have no intentions of getting the flu vaccine this year.

Most cited concerns about potential side effects from the shot.

About a third said they don’t get vaccinated because they say they simply never get the flu.

The CDC recommends everyone over age six months receive an annual flu shot.
