I took my children to get their flu shot this week. I was unexpectantly surprised how easy and painless this so called shot was. I was told it was going to be the shot, but when I arrived in the room, the nurse brought in the FluMist shot. I was so thrilled! No tears or screaming! It took only 2 minutes to do all 3 of my children. All the nurse did was stick the vial up their noses and bam was over with! I highly, highly recommend trying to substitute the painful flu shot with the FluMist, especially for the younger children. The only downfall is that I have to wait until my 3 month old is 6 months to get it.
