Many parents have a love/hate relationship with the flu shot. On the one hand, it may keep illness out of the house but on the other hand, it means bringing their kids into a doctor's office or pharmacy to get a needle – something that doesn't typically go over very well with kids.
Did you know there is another option to the flu shot needle? There is also a nasal spray flu vaccine. And in fact, the nasal spray version has been shown to be more effective in children two to eight years of age. Call your doctor to find out more about this option.
What's the difference between the two you may be wondering?
And if you are looking for a more natural option, its worth visiting a Naturopathic doctor or a wellness clinic and finding out more about something called Pascoleucyn Forte which is an immunity booster and a homeopathic option to prevent cold and flu. We recommend contacting Dr. Michelle Peris, ND or Fully Alive Wellness Centre.
