Due to the low efficacy among children over the past three seasons, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices no longer recommends using the nasal spray form of the live attenuated influenza vaccine. It is estimated to be only 3% effective for those 2-17 years old compared to the 63% effectiveness of the inactivated influenza vaccine given by injection. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports this position.

LifeTip: Encourage your children to endure the small pain of an injection for much better protection. Watch “Avoid Colds & Flus Naturally” by Dr. David DeRose for additional recommendations.
