Much to the chagrin of kids and adults who don’t like needles, the flu nasal mist will no longer be available. Why is an injection from your walk-in clinic the best way to go, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention? Watch this video to find out.
The nasal mist, while initially effective when it was introduced, no longer provides adequate protection from the flu virus. Although experts are not sure why, it was only 3% effective in preventing flu in kids last year, so family medicine and pediatric specialists will now only be providing flu injections.
Although kids and parents alike may dread the needle, a quick shot is much safer than flu complications. Get your flu shot in Orlando at Paramount Urgent Care, or visit one of our three other locations in Oviedo, Lady Lake, and Clermont. You can learn more about our walk-in clinic by calling 352-674-9218.
