A study by NORC at the University of Chicago found that over 40 percent of American adults have not yet received their influenza conditions and are not planning to.

The survey showed that 41 percent of adults do not plan to be vaccinated despite the record high death rates last year.

Apparently, most people were worried about the side effects to get the shot, while others did not find it to work very well.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that those who received influenza conditions in the last two seasons fell the chance of getting the flu 40 percent.
