Kids are better off getting the Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine

A spray up the nose is better than a shot in the arm when it comes to young kids getting flu vaccines.

That's according to a federal advisory panel.

They have agreed to tell doctors that "Flumist" Nasal Spray is a bit better at preventing flu in healthy young kids, ages 2 through 8.

The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over 6-months-old.

The nasal spray version is approved only for ages 2 to 49.
