My niece and girlfriend have it now too.) The short time it will take you to get a flu vaccine. Can help protect you and the ones you love.

Why no FluMist this year?

 
FluMist influenza vaccine given as a nasal spray, which was previously available, is no longer recommended by experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In recent years, people who got this version were not adequately protected against influenza. Therefore, beginning in the fall of 2016, CDC does not recommend the use of the nasal spray vaccine.

Be assured that vaccine supply will be sufficient and that anyone who wants an influenza vaccine should be able to get one.  Although the FluMist nasal spray vaccine is not recommended this season, the hope is that once researchers figure out what happened, the vaccine will return to the list of recommended influenza vaccine options.
