TORONTO – A new poll suggests interest in swine flu vaccine is decreasing in Canada, with only a third of people saying they plan to get vaccinated when the shots are available.

That’s down from a previous survey done in late August, when 45 per cent of respondents said they planned to get an H1N1 flu shot.


Half of respondents say they won’t get any flu shot at all this winter and 27 per cent say they would get both.
