Flu Vaccine

WHICH FLU VACCINE SHOULD I GET THIS YEAR?
 

There are two basic types of vaccines; the old standard “shot” – Inactivated Influenza Vaccine – (IIV or TIV/QIV) and Intranasal Live Attenuated Vaccine –( LAIV), the nasal spray.


The flu vaccine (IIV) was first developed in the 1930’s and became widely available for the general population by 1945.
