LAIV flu vaccine (nasal spray)[edit]

This is an attenuated vaccine, correct? I would think mention of this example would be a good inclusion here. I may do it myself if I have time, but if someone more familiar with the subject beats me to it, I won't mind. -- Spireguy (talk) 03:25, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


When was this form of vaccination first invented and put to use? Is it very old or a new development? This article needs some mention of history, maybe not a whole section but something. --Cowlinator (talk) 12:06, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Safety -- How safe are Attenuated Vaccines compared to other Vaccines ?[edit]

No discussion on safety? I would like to find some stats on adverse reactions for live attenuated vaccines, compared to other types of vaccines. Zarkme (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 09:40, 31 October 2011 (UTC).

Slight contradiction[edit]

Transport is listed as both easy and hard, and as a pro and a con. Maybe some clarification? Unchartered (talk) 05:36, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
