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".
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.
