Charlie Hinderliter wasn’t opposed to the flu shot. He didn’t have a problem with vaccinations. He was one of about 53 percent of Americans who just don’t get one.
“I figured [the flu] was something that’s dangerous to the elderly and the young, not somebody who is healthy and in their 30s,” says Hinderliter, who is 39 and the director of government affairs at the St. Louis Realtors association.
“Turns out, I was wrong,” he says.
