Flu shots are made of killed influenza virus, while FluMist is a live but weakened strain.
MedImmune, which already makes the nasal spray vaccine FluMist for seasonal flu viruses, says it is on track to produce about five times as much swine flu vaccine as it had expected — so much, in fact, that it will run out of nasal spray devices and is looking to administer the vaccines with droppers instead.
A nasal spray vaccine could be a strong weapon against swine flu because makers of conventional flu shots have reported problems producing their vaccines.
The director of Clinical Research at the National Centre for Immunisation, Research and Surveillance, Robert Booy, yesterday said 10 children younger than 15 had died of swine flu in the four months since the virus started sweeping Australia.
Seasonal flu typically killed five or six children in an entire year, he said. "(The death rate) is about twice what we normally see," Professor Booy told The Weekend Australian yesterday.
