As the academy noted, FluMist didn't work as well as shots against the A/H1N1 flu strain during the 2013-14 and 2015-16 flu seasons, and the CDC recommended against its use in the US during the last two seasons.

The 3rd source was manufacturer data concerning shedding and immunogenicity associated with the administration of LAIV containing the new H1N1pdm09-like vaccine virus, A/Slovenia/2903/2015, among children aged 24 months through less than 4 years of age. WTOC spoke to a pharmacist in Bryan County who says he's already heard of one person getting the flu within the last few weeks. The spray is not recommended for children who have asthma or are immunocompromised.
