For Influenza Prophylaxis "My 10 yr old daughter had the flu mist for the first time usually she gets the injection, but her doctor ran out of the injection So I said ok give her the mist. NEVER AGAIN!! We will stick to injections from now on. She got the mist on 10/9/15 & the next day she woke up with pain in her legs and weakness of her body & a bad cold, sneezing a lot & muccus, but by night she was coughing and stuffy trouble breathing. The only reason she had no fever was because I immediately gave her motrin 400 that her doctor gave her. I don't like the mist & that's the last time she will get the mist.. If you're here looking for reviews to see if u should get the mist or shot the best advice I can give u is stick to the shot, "

For Influenza Prophylaxis "I've taking Flumist every year for about six years. I've never really had any problems with it, except a runny nose the day after. I'd definitely recommend it."

For Influenza Prophylaxis "My daughter got the Flumist and felt very bad two days after that. She had vomiting, abdominal pain and the next day after that a very bad rush in all her body. I have to mention she is not allergic to anything. I took her to the doctor and of course they said is has nothing to do with the Flumist."

For Influenza Prophylaxis "My son got the Flumist and was a little tired for a couple of days and loss of appetite. It's now day 4 and he has a fever of 100.5, not too high. We will see how long it takes for it to go away. My 6 year old had tiredness, sneezing and stuffiness and keeps taking her temperature but seems to be okay. My 9 year old just has some stuffiness. I wonder if body weight has anything to do with it since they all received the same dose. Maybe the dosage should be tailored to body weight."

For Influenza Prophylaxis "I received the flu mist on a Thursday evening by Friday night I had congestion in my head. Sore throat. And just an all around sick/drained feeling. I get sick easily and had a feeling I would react this way but was assured by healthcare providers it was the better route. After listening to the benefits I decided to give it a try. "

For Influenza Prophylaxis "My two year old had the Flu Mist vaccine on a Monday morning. By Monday evening he had a fever, no energy or appetite and wanted to go to bed. Tuesday his temperature spiked to 104.5 and he had achy arms and legs, head and tummy. Still had a fever all day Wednesday but started taking fluids again, still not eating. When he was one he had the shot and had no reaction. I think we'll stick with the injection from now on."
