(Reuters) – About 60% of U.S. adults either plan to or definitely will get the flu vaccine in the fall amid the coronavirus pandemic, with more Americans who identified themselves as Democrats planning to do so than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. The poll found a relationship between vaccinations and political affiliation, race, income and education. The poll of 4,428 adults was conducted online from May 13 to May 19. It had a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Here is a look at some of the key findings. — 40% of respondents said that had gotten a flu shot every year for the past five years, while 30% said they had not gotten one during that period.
