Change for Flu Vaccination Program This Year

Virginia Mason will not offer flu mist as a vaccination option this year, based on recent recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended that “nasal mist spray” flu vaccine should not be used during the 2016-2017 flu season, based on recent studies showing that flu mist had not been effective during the past three flu seasons. Data from earlier studies had shown the mist was effective, so Virginia Mason continued to offer the mist in past years, until the recent recommendation from the CDC.

The flu is a serious disease that causes millions of illnesses and thousands of deaths each year, and the flu vaccine can help protect people. That’s why Virginia Mason continues to require annual flu shots for team members, and encourages all patients to receive flu shots, as well. This year’s annual flu campaign will start again in September.

It is possible that the flu mist may return in future years as an effective vaccination option. Virginia Mason will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC, and share any changes with patients as we know more.

If you have any questions or concerns about flu vaccinations, please talk with your health care provider.
