Getting Flumist

Original post made by Jarred, Midtown, on Dec 18, 2007

Does anyone know where to get Flumist this season? Long's says they are going to get it at some point, but hasn't yet as of Dec 18.

We tried calling Palo Alto Medical Foundation (the DMV of health care). If you can ever get through the phone tree, they'd be glad to have you explain to them what Flumist is, transfer you to six other people, then tell you they don't have it.

If you haven't heard of it, Flumist is a flu vaccine nasal spray. It's an alternative to the flu shot. Good for kids who hate getting shots. Seems to provide comparable protection to the flu shot.

Did you call Safeway? I remember seeing on their website that they offer it, but I'm not sure which locations have it nor when they offer it. good luck and good health!
