† Based on a response to the question, “During the past 12 months, have you had a flu vaccination?” Annual calendar-year estimates of vaccinations differ from seasonal influenza vaccination totals, which reflect vaccinations obtained during the influenza season.
§ Estimates are based on household interviews of a sample of the civilian, noninstitutionalized U.S. population.
During 2020, 43.7% of men and 51.9% of women aged ≥18 years received an influenza vaccination in the past 12 months, and the prevalence increased with age for both sexes. Among men, 32.7% aged 18–44 years, 43.7% aged 45–64 years, and 69.0% aged ≥65 years received an influenza vaccination. Among women, 42.0% aged 18–44 years, 51.1% aged 45–64 years, and 72.2% aged ≥65 years received an influenza vaccination. For each age group, women were more likely to have received an influenza vaccination compared with men.
