Whether your child should get the flu shot or nasal spray is up to you. There are pros and cons to both preventative measures. At this time, only children over the age of two are eligible for the nasal spray. Additionally, children who have a history of breathing disorders should avoid the spray. Of course, the spray is much less painful than the shot, and it may appeal to your child.
If you have any questions about which type of vaccine is best for your child, speaking with a pediatrician is the best choice. You might learn that one of the choices is better for your child.
Always check with your doctor regarding health questions and issues.
