So my kids (5 and 3) have recieved the first dose of the H1N1 vaccine. They had the mist. The time is coming for them to get dose #2. Does anyone know if they *have* to have the mist for the second dose? Can they get the shot for dose #2 or do I have to remain consistant with the type of vaccine? Any info would be greatly appriciated!

From the CDC:

CDC H1N1 Flu |2009 H1N1 Nasal Spray Vaccine: Q & A

Ideally the same type of vaccine should be used for both doses as we know a series of two doses of the same type of vaccine has worked in clinical trials. No information is available about how effective a series of two different vaccines might be. If different types of vaccine are used for the first and second doses, however, there is no need to revaccinate a child. The doses should be separated by at least one month (28 days).
