Protecting children from the flu

There are several options for children: most vaccines are available as a shot and one is given as a nasal spray called FluMist. FluMist is available in a limited number of doses, and is available at some doctors’ offices and VCH Public Health clinics. Call ahead to your local clinic to check availability. The injectable flu vaccines offer excellent protection. Please do not delay immunizing children.
