Even though officials in other Florida counties have decided against using a nasal form of the H1N1 vaccine, Santa Rosa County, Florida officials have approved using the nasal vaccine, because it is less traumatic for children. The counties that declined to use the nasal vaccine cited concerns that the version of the virus used in the nasal vaccine might actually spread the virus. The Santa Rosa School District has made an effort to educate parents about their vaccination options.
No child will be given the vaccine without the permission of their parent or guardian. Parents who are unsure of which vaccination method is best for their child should contact their family physician / pediatrician.
