Study Says Many Parents in U.S. Not in Favor of Flu Shots

By Wochit 05 October 2016

According to a new study, many parents in the U.S. who don't get their children flu shots say they don't see the need for it. For the study, which was conducted during the 2012-2013 flu season, researchers questioned 131 parents of children ages 9 months to 18 years old. In the survey, parents were asked about their child's history of getting the flu, reasons for not giving their child vaccinations, and if they planned to have their children vaccinated for the next flu season. Each year, more than 200,000 people in the United States are hospitalized for respiratory and heart problems associated with seasonal flu symptoms. The CDC recommends that everyone at least six months and older receive a flu shot every year.
