For far too long, nasal sprays have been the domain of dubious and controversial adult products, and rather uncomfortable hayfever remedies. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are fixing that, by sending out pig flu vaccinations in nasal spray form.
FORT WORTH — Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) received limited doses of the H1N1 nasal spray vaccine on Oct. 5. Plans to distribute this initial shipment of the vaccine are being finalized.
The nasal vaccine is intended for healthy, non-pregnant people between the ages of 2 and 49 who do not live or work with an immunocompromised person.
The injectible form of the vaccine has not been received and it is not known when it will be received.
I hate nasal sprays, but this is an interesting use of one.
