From the 2010 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?
Enter year of most recent flu vaccine.
DURING THE PAST 12 MONTHS, have you had a flu vaccine sprayed in your nose by a doctor or other health professional? A health professional may have let you spray it. This vaccine 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 nasal spray?
Enter year of most recent flu nasal spray.
Do you currently volunteer or work in a hospital, medical clinic, doctor’s office, dentist’s office, nursing home or some other health-care facility? This includes part-time and unpaid work in a health care facility as well as professional nursing care provided in the home.
The Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all persons aged 6 months and over receive the influenza vaccine, with continued emphasis placed on vaccination of persons who live with or care for persons at higher risk for influenza-related complications, including health-care personnel. Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all health-care personnel and persons in training for health-care professions. Personnel in health-care settings who should be vaccinated include physicians, nurses, and other workers in inpatient and outpatient-care settings, medical emergency-response workers (e.g., paramedics and emergency medical technicians), employees of nursing home and long-term care facilities who have contact with patients or residents, and students in these professions who will have contact with patients.
Based on the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), health-care personnel are defined as persons aged 18 years and over who reported that they currently volunteer or work in a hospital, medical clinic, doctor’s office, dentist’s office, nursing home or some other health-care facility, including part-time and unpaid work in a health care facility as well as professional nursing care provided in the home.
