The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and ACIP are not recommending the flumist nasal vaccine for the upcoming 2016-2017 flu season. This decision was made based on vaccine efficacy data which suggests that the flu mist will not provide significant protection this year against the flu. It is for this reason that CareFirst Pediatrics will only provide injectable flu vaccines this upcoming season to all patients over 6 months of age. We should have ample supplies of injectable vaccine for all ages, More information about this decision can be found here .
