Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) -- Influenza (Flu) Vaccine (Live, Intranasal): What You Need to Know

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) educates people about the live attenuated influenza (flu) vaccine (LAIV), which is sprayed into the nose and may be given to healthy, non-pregnant people 2 through 49 years of age. It describes flu symptoms and transmission, and outlines risks and dangers associated with the flu for specific age groups and people with certain conditions. It provides facts about the LAIV vaccine, and recommends that people receive it every year, clarifying that children under 9 may need two doses during the same flu season. It identifies who should not get vaccinated, describes risks and side effects, and what to look for and what to do in the event of a severe allergic reaction. Contact information for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is provided, along with tips for how people can learn more about the LAIV nasal spray.

The English-language VIS was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The translations are provided by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and its partner organizations.

Important Note: The influenza dates are not listed (i.e., 2015-16) at the top of these VISs. These VISs may be used for this and future years, until there is a significant change in flu recommendations that will require changing them.
