FluMist Not Being Given This Year

VUMC

​The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has recommended that FluMist should NOT be used during the 2016-2017 flu season.

ACIP is a panel of immunization experts that advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This ACIP vote is based on data showing poor or relatively lower effectiveness of LAIV from 2013 through 2016.

Therefore VUMC will not stock or administer FluMist this season, including through the Occupational Health Clinic’s employee vaccination program. FluMist cannot be used to satisfy the influenza immunization requirement this year.
