Fewer people got flu vaccines last year, amid deadliest flu season in decades

Only about four in 10 U.S. adults got a flu vaccine last year, fewer than last year and in previous years, according to a new report out from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new analysis, which encouraged doctors to recommend and offer flu vaccines, presents a fuller picture of the 2017-2018 flu season, which was the deadliest in four decades.

Lower vaccine rates were consistent across adults of many ages, the study found, with vaccine coverage among all adult age groups coming in at the lowest levels in seven flu seasons.
