FluMist More Effective than Injections in Kids

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

I reported the other day that the FluMist influenza vaccine appears to be effective in kids. Well, now there’s evidence suggesting that FluMist isn’t just effective in kids, but that it might actually be better than a standard flu shot. Indeed, a national study led by St. Louis University vaccine specialist Dr. Robert Belshe revealed that the spray vaccine was 55% more effective than traditional flu shots in children under the age of five. As it turns out, however, FluMist is currently only sold for use in children five and older.
