Get those kids their nasal sprays!

The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices announced last week that FluMist, the nasal spray flu vaccine (live attenuated) was recommended for healthy children between the ages 2-5 to prevent infection. Previously, only people between the ages of 5-49 were recommended to take the nasal spray over the vaccine. Contraindications for the nasal spray include people outside the age range of 2-49 and those with an underlying chronic health condition, such as heart or lung disease, diabetes or kidney disease.

The article didn't mention the effectiveness of the nasal spray vs. the injection, but that would be interesting to know...
