Questions Used to Obtain the National Baseline Data

From the 2008 National Health Interview Survey:


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. During what month and year did you receive your most recent flu shot?


Are you currently pregnant?

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective
Not applicable
Methodology Notes

The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) asks about current pregnancy status, so this measure will exclude some women who were pregnant during the September through February vaccination period (e.g., pregnant in December, delivered in February, and interviewed in April), and include some women who were not pregnant during the vaccination period (e.g., became pregnant in February and interviewed in April). Pregnant women interviewed during the vaccination period may have received an influenza vaccination while pregnant after the date of their interview.
