Nearly half the 289 people responding to an InMaricopa.com poll on flu shots said they don’t believe in getting the vaccination.

However, 34 percent, or 99 people, said they had gotten their shot weeks before national news on the bad flu season broke out.

Eight percent, or 23 people, said they still intended on getting a flu shot, and 3 percent said they planned to get a shot the week the poll was posted.

Another 6 percent said they were either too busy to get a shot, or couldn’t afford one.
