Virus vaccine up the nose until age 50

The CDC is answering questions about use of the nasal-spray vaccine for H1N1, the sensational virus of the season. CDC says that the nasal spray is designed for people under age 50.

But don’t be getting too ardent about inhaling this vaccine and the regular, seasonal flu mist. CDC says “the seasonal nasal spray vaccine and the 2009 H1N1 nasal spray vaccine should not be given at the same time.”

Plenty of details on inhaled virus vaccines — built with live viruses — at the CDC Web site.
