Gear Up for More Flu SHOTS Instead of the Nasal Spray This Season
You'll see an increase in use of the flu SHOT this season...and little or no use of the intranasal flu vaccine.
That's because new CDC data show the intranasal version (FluMist) doesn't seem to work very well in the U.S.
This is a surprise. Two years ago, the intranasal vaccine was preferred for most kids ages 2 to 8...since it seemed to work BETTER than the injectable version.
