DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – As the fall approaches, it’s time to talk with your doctor about getting the flu shot. And new this year, a CDC advisory committee has recommended that the nasal spray, also known as flu mist, should not be used during this influenza season. They say the flu shot delivers the most effective form of protection.
In the above interview, Dr. Joe Allen with Premier Health Net explains why the mist is not effective.
Allen also talks about the recent decision from the FDA to ban a number of ingredients in antibacterial soap, and how it may have been more harmful than helpful all these years.
