Where can I get the nasal flu spray? The local Fraser Health offices only offer to 5 years and under. My child is 8 years with an allergy. Why would I have to pay to vaccinate my child?
Publicly funded flu vaccine is available free to people who meet specific criteria. Having an allergy is not one of the criteria, but it is possible that your daughter may meet other criteria for free flu vaccine. We recommend that you contact local public health unit to find out if she does qualify for free flu vaccine and for information on FluMist availability in your area. Some doctor's offices may also have the publicly funded vaccine.
FluMist is also available for private purchase at some pharmacies and travel clinics (pharmacists are able to administer FluMist, however in general will not be providing the publicly funded vaccine this year). Pharmacies are recommending that people call ahead regarding FluMist availability.
