This study will examine the feasibility of having parents and caregivers administer FluMist live intranasal vaccine to their children at home outside the traditional medical environment and without the involvement of medical personnel.
The study will recruit patients and families that are already eligible to receive the FluMist vaccine. After consent is obtained and vaccine is given to the family, they will go home to administer vaccine to other members within 24 hours. Telephone follow up within 48 hours will confirm that vaccine was given successfully and within 9-12 days to assess patient preferences for giving vaccine at home and if there were any adverse events.

Subjects receiving vaccine at home
Subjects receiving Flumist vaccine
- Number of Subjects That Reported Successful Home Vaccination With no Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 0-12 days ]We will assess the tolerability of giving the FluMist nasal vaccine at home by parents/caregivers to their children by performing telephone survey follow up. We will ask parents at both 24-48 hours and at 9-12 days after study visit and enrollment about any difficulties in giving FluMist at home and any adverse events encountered when giving FluMist at home.
- Number of Subjects That Reported Ability to Successfully Administer FluMist Vaccine at Home [ Time Frame: 0-12 days ]This study will also assess the feasibility of having parents/caregivers administer Flumist vaccine outside a traditional medical environment and without the direct participation of medical personnel. We will ask parents by telephone survey at both 24-48 hours and at 9-12 days after study visit and enrollment about any difficulties in giving FluMist at home, about maintaining temperature and conditions proper for vaccine storage until administration. We will also ask about ease of vaccine disposal and about child preferences for receiving vaccine at home compared to at a dedicated medical visit.
