Intranasal flu vaccine available this season @ Chapala Med

Post by Chapalamed on Thu Oct 15, 2015 7:39 pm

Intranasal flu vaccine available this season(as well as the traditional one). This vaccine is available for those patients who are an "allergy" of any sort to needles.
It provides a convenient alternative to the traditional flu shot. Use of a live attenuated virus that stimulates an immune response directly
in the nasal passages has certain therapeutic advantages in some patients.

Call or stop by our office to schedule this or any other vaccine that you may need updating.

Remember that the FLU remains a killer in the top 10 list in the U.S. and since the SNOW BIRDS are on their way, it's best to be prepared.

Worldwide there are between 250,000 and 500,000 flu deaths per year. In a typical flu season, between 3 and 5 million people will have what is considered a serious case of influenza.

Is the intranasal vaccine recommended for older adults now? Several years ago I was already too old for it.
