The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is making the following recommendations:
- Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months and older.
- For the 2018-2019 season, the AAP recommends inactivated (Flu Shot) influenza vaccine (IIV3/4) as the primary choice for all children because the effectiveness of intranasal Flu Mist (LAIV4);
- was inferior against A/H1N1 during past seasons; and
- is unknown against A/H1N1 for this upcoming season.
Based on this recommendation, we are not offering intranasal Flu Mist for the 2018-2019 Flu Season.
