Seasonal Flu Shot (nasal spray) and Asthma
My daughter just received the nasal spray for the seasonal flu shot.   I believe she can only receive the injection which is inactivatted.  The doctor argued so much about it saying it's ok for her to get the nasal spray.  I was wondering if this can bring some negative side effects.  She is four years old and suffers from asthma since she was 3 years old.

I do believe I've also read up that people at high risk should not get the live vaccine, as it has not been proven to be safe for them. I would certainly try to get the shot over the nasal spray.

The H1N1 shot though does make your arm much more sore then dose the regular seasonal flu shot.
