According to the CDC, the flu vaccination rate for children is lower this year than last. As of the week ending Nov. 6, 35% had been vaccinated compared with 40.3% at that time last year. Data from October showed vaccination rates among pregnant people were down by 17 percentage points, from 58.2% last year to 40.8% this year. The news was better for all adults. A survey conducted in early November on whether adults had either already been vaccinated or intended to get a shot projected that vaccination coverage this season would be 58.5%, up 3.7 percentage points from last season. When the survey was conducted, 40.9% of respondents said they had already been vaccinated.
