ABSTRACT
The article discusses a survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide a baseline for places where adults received influenza vaccination in the light of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendation and to help vaccination providers plan for the 2011-2012 influenza season. Data collected by the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) revealed that overall, 39.8% of adults took their 2010-2011 influenza vaccine in doctor's offices and 18.4% in supermarkets or drugstores
