Nasal spray flu vaccine very effective for children
from The Globe and Mail
When Nicola Mercer got the chance last year to vaccinate her children against influenza without subjecting them to the sting of a needle, she jumped at it. Her children, then 11 and 12, were “very impressed,” with FluMist, a vaccine they inhaled. And Dr. Mercer, the medical officer of health for the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Unit, west of Toronto, was happy to offer her son and daughter a vaccine that has been shown to better protect children against the flu.
