  • If you are 2 -18 you get the mist. Everyone else gets a shot.

  • There is both a mist and injection version. The mist is commonly given to healthy people ages 5 to 49.

  • Both are available. I got the mist. Children under 2 cannot have the mist nor can older people. So they have priority with the shot (at least where I am.) My daughter is 2 1/2 but cannot figure out the sniff part so we'll have to wait for the shot.

  • If you are 2-18 you don't necessarily get the mist! Armywife, get informed!!

    Those with respiratory issues canNOT get the mist no matter how old they are!

    OP...the H1N1 shot is a shot. The H1N1 flumist is the mist. I don't understand what you're asking.
