Flu-Mist Not Available In Schools This Year

Edie Cope, RN at Lee High School, says the Flu-Mist Vaccine will not be available to Lee, Scott, and Wise County Schools this flu season. Lenowisco nurse manager Michelle McPheron reported that the issue is nationwide, with distributors saying only a portion of the order placed by Lee County will be filled. The Virginia Department of Health is urging parents to check with their health care provider or the health department for the Flu-Mist. The VDH is working with schools to contact parents who have indicated an interest in the Flu-Mist vaccine to determine if they will agree to the inject-able vaccine, instead. For more information call the Lee County Health Department at 346-2011.
