What Parents Should Know About the Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine

Doctor You can't get flu from flu vaccine

However, the nasal spray vaccine can be used for children 2 years of age or older who would not otherwise receive the flu shot.

The controversial FluMist is back just in time for flu season.

Getting vaccinated against the flu is not the only preventative shot Palmetto Health is backing.

Shu explained that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation differs from that of the academy; the CDC says that either the flu shot or FluMist is fine.

Stanton says doctors are hopeful that this early surge will slow down ahead of traditional flu season between December and March, but it is important to get vaccinated sooner rather than later.

Lionel Messi omitted from FIFA's shortlist of the world's top three players
Salah's strike in last December's Merseyside derby also makes the shortlist, with FIFA .com users voting for the victor . We've strengthened by signing a player who knows how to win finals, but the Champions League is not an easy competition.

The Food and Drug Administration has already released this year's flu vaccines, and the CDC recommends people get immunized before flu starts spreading in their communities - definitely before the end of October - as the vaccination takes about two weeks to start working. But it is still worth getting the shot. Last year, officials reported a record 389 flu deaths in North Carolina and 292 in SC. Many pediatricians could be providing their sufferers both the frequent flu shot and FluMist nasal spray.

If a child has received two or more vaccines before July 1, 2018, they need only one dose.

Fauci told WTOP that data from years ago show that the flu mist was not as effective at protecting against the H1N1 strain of the flu. Parents who are uncertain about which is best for their children should talk it over with their doctors, she added.

Although the AAP recommends getting an injection over the nasal mist, there is also that option. The spray is not recommended for children who have asthma or are immunocompromised.

Johnson said she is happy Houston has "the opportunity to provide equitable access to vaccines for all of our children and provide them all the opportunity to be protected, regardless of where they live in the district and their ability to pay".

Children with egg allergy can receive the flu vaccine with the same precautions considered for any vaccine.

Fauci said that there's "a lot of effort and interest now in doing better" with both the seasonal flu vaccine and a universal flu vaccine.

Where Can I Get The Vaccine?

Caughman Taylor, senior medical director at Palmetto Health Children's Hospital and chairman of the Pediatrics Department, said complications from the flu can be more severe than only missing five to seven days of school or work. Some vaccines might even be covered by your insurance. You can also visit the CDC website to find the nearest location available.
