FluMist could return next flu season

Posted: Updated:

 UNITED STATES - After a two-year absence, FluMist could be available again next flu season.

FluMist has been popular with kids because it's the only needle-free flu vaccine. Doctors stopped offering it when it was found to be ineffective against flu strains circulating in previous years.

But now, Med-Immune, the company that makes FluMist, says it has re-formulated the product to work better.

On Wednesday, February 21, the advisory committee on immunization practices voted to recommend FluMist.
