H1N1 Nasal Spray Vaccine (cont.)


Who makes the nasal spray vaccine?

The nasal spray vaccine for use in the United States is being made by MedImmune, the same company that makes the seasonal nasal spray vaccine called "FluMist®." The 2009 H1N1 nasal spray vaccine is being made using the same manufacturing process that has been used since 2003 to make the seasonal nasal spray vaccine.

* "Healthy" indicates persons who do not have an underlying medical condition that predisposes them to influenza complications.
