CVS/pharmacy Consumer Survey Finds Three in Five Americans are Unaware of the Importance of the High Dose Flu Vaccine in Senior Flu Prevention
Date:8/15/2014

nd weekends, with no appointment needed.

Getting the flu shot at CVS/pharmacy or MinuteClinic is also very affordable. Nearly half of Americans (46 percent) are unaware that the flu vaccine is a preventive service under the Affordable Care Act, fully covered and available at no cost through most insurance plans, including Medicare Part B. CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic can directly bill many national and regional health plans that cover all or part of the cost of a flu shot.

Additional key findings from the survey include:

  • Two-thirds (67 percent) of employed Americans would go to work even if they were feeling ill with flu-like symptoms.
  • Less than half (44 percent) of those who receive a flu vaccine each year get it administered at a primary care physician's office. According to CVS/pharmacy's 2013 consumer survey about flu, which revealed 61 percent of U.S. adults who ever received a flu shot have ever received their vaccination at a primary care physician's office, this is on the decline.1
  • Three-fifths (59 percent) indicated they plan to get the flu shot this year.
  • According to the CDC, it is estimated that 90 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths and more than 60 percent of seasonal flu-related hospitalizations in the United States each year occur in people 65 years and older.
    • With this in mind, 63 percent of those 65 and older would consider getting a high-dose flu vaccine.
    • Nearly three in five (58 percent) of those aged 18-64 indicate they would recommend the high dose vaccine to someone 65 and older.

In addition to flu shots, CVS pharmacists and MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants are available to provide a number of other vaccinations, including pneumonia and pertussis (whooping cough), among others. Vi
