Flumist: for those who don’t want a Flu injection

We would like to let you know that FLUMIST, the intranasal spray flu vaccine, is now available for use. This serves as an alternative for those who do not want the injection Flu vaccine but still wants the protection. As a live attenuated vaccine, it covers the same strains as the injection Flu vaccine and also has the same protection rates and side effect profile. It is given as a nasal spray to both nostrils.

However, it is only approved for use in children above 2 years, and those who do not have current or a history of wheezing, nor a suppressed immune system. Administration schedule is the same as the injection of flu vaccine.

For more information, please consult the following links: https://www.webmd.com/cold-and-flu/flu-guide/questions-answers-nasal-spray-flu-vaccine#1

You are most welcome to ask our staff and doctors about it.
