    I am required to get an influenza immunization yearly through the military. I found out this year that I was required to take a flumist rather than the shot. I have been so sick since receiving the flumist. I will never take it again and am not an advocate for it at all. I have never had a reaction to the shot. This is completely unsat!

    I received the Flumist nasal spray in Nov. 2008. I did not get the flu that season and it was easy to receive, a very small spray in each nostril. The best part is no needle. I will get the Flumist again this year.
