As they report inhalable vaccine against H1N1 Influenza will be available soon.It will contain live attenuated virus.
CLIPPED FROM: That form of vaccine is marketed in the United States as FluMist and is approved only for healthy individuals between the ages of 2 and 49. Pregnant women are not allowed to get this type of vaccine because it contains a live virus. Butler added that he thinks there some flu shots may be available in early October as well, but he had a hard number only for the inhalable vaccine. Flu shots contain an inactivated, or dead, virus.
