CVS/pharmacy Consumer Survey Finds Less than Half of Americans are More Likely to Get Vaccinated Following Last Season's Flu Outbreak, But Many More Call getting a Flu Shot a "Social Responsibility"
Date:8/15/2013

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new survey from CVS/pharmacy released today found that less than half of those surveyed (46%) were more likely to get a flu shot this year following last season's late flu outbreak. But many more - 59% - said they consider it a social responsibility to get the flu shot every year in order to keep their community healthy and minimize the spread of the influenza virus.

All CVS/pharmacy and most MinuteClinic locations are offering flu vaccinations this week and all locations will have vaccine in stock by the end of August.

"It is important for people to get the flu shot annually because it is the most effective way to prevent the spread of influenza to others and your immunity from the virus declines over time," said Papatya Tankut, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy Affairs, CVS Caremark. "The results of our consumer survey demonstrate the heightened awareness among Americans to get vaccinated, and CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic are two of the most convenient places to get a flu shot."  

Convenience is a major driver in a consumer's decision about where to receive a flu shot. Nearly half (47%) of the respondents agree that it is inconvenient to make an appointment for a flu shot.  

This season, more than 7,500 CVS/pharmacy stores and 650 MinuteClinic sites inside select CVS locations will be providing flu shots every day, including evenings and weekends, no appointment needed.
