Is it true that most of the swine flu vaccines are going to be in the nasal spray, which is a live virus?

This doesn't make since since babies under 2 can't take it and they are the most at risk.

  • My understanding is that the nasal spray is for healthy people between about 6-55. The injection is for the young and old and those with health issues. Also, no live virus is in either of them.

    I could be wrong but that's what I saw on all the ABC news in my area.
