    I'm curious if there were side effects like fever or malaise. Anyone?

    I tried to get the flumist today while at the doctor. I was told they are only offering it to pediatric patients and pregnant woman at my clinic. I'm going to try another clinic as I want flumist versus the shot.

    That's strange. Pregnant women should not be getting flumist because it is a live-attenuated vaccine.

    That's true.

    I am thinking that the clinic probably meant that they would be reserving the thimerosal free injections for pregnant women, and not the mist.

    I got the mist about 10 hours ago. All I have noticed is a little nasal congestion. But it is very slight, and if I hadn't gotten the mist I wouldn't have even thought about it.
