Question from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA:

Is it better for a person with type 1 diabetes to get the injected flu vaccine or to use the Flu Mist nasal vaccine?

Answer:

I don’t think it matters and, in fact, in most cases, do not specifically recommend flu immunization unless there is some other problem – recurrent infections, lung illness/asthma/bronchitis, etc.
