The 2016-17, flu vaccines have three or four viruses that researchers feel would be circulating this flu season. The intranasal flu vaccine (nasal spray) is not recommended this flu season because of its effectiveness. If you are allergic to eggs or could not receive the flu vaccine in the past because of allergic reactions, there are new recommendations allowing people with egg allergy and past reactions to take it now. Please check with your doctor or your child’s pediatrician.
