Do Not Use the Intranasal Flu Vaccine This Year
You'll hear controversy about the efficacy of the intranasal flu vaccine (FluMist)...due to new CDC evidence.
It suggests the intranasal vaccine is now only about 3% effective in kids and teens...compared to about 63% with the injectable.
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.
