What are the Alternatives to Flu Mist?

Different Kinds Of Inoculations

There are several different kinds of inoculations available on the market today. Beyond the flu mist, there is the flu shot. There are also orally-ingested vaccination options, but these are subject to the body’s digestive system, which is an old hand when it comes to dissolving toxic entities. One of the reasons such options are so sparse is that they don’t generally work. Before the body’s immune system can latch onto an orally ingested vaccine, it’s already been digested. That’s not the case with all vaccines, however. With polio, they used to put a solution of the inoculation substance on a sugar cube. With influenza, though, the most success has come either from the injection, or the mist.

Pros And Cons Of The Flu Mist

This is a tough topic to explore. You’d think the mist’s better, and this option has a number of very noteworthy advantages:
  • Painless
  • Convenient
  • Simple
  • Easy
  • Non-Threatening
It also has some disadvantages, but the primary one is this: flu vaccines administered via flu mist are steadily becoming ineffective. This likely has to do with influenza itself. People don’t usually realize this, but consider the facts. Every year, a new flu shot is necessary for proper inoculation against the coming flu season. Why would that happen if influenza itself wasn’t in continuous transition? Think of the flu not as a tiny microscopic insect that afflicts the “good bugs” that’ are called white blood cells in your immune system. Think of the flu like a worldwide software program with an AI (artificial intelligence) designed to adapt as it’s defended against. That’s more like the flu. It’s not becoming non-flu. It just adapts as people do.

Transitioning Ailments

Diseases in general do this kind of thing. This is why physicians aren’t handing out antibiotics as wantonly as they did in the past. Microbiological organisms became inured to them, and they ceased to be effective. In the same way, influenza is steadily outmoding the flu mist, which is predicating the use of injections. An injection can more securely deposit the vaccine into the bloodstream. And, to be clear, an injection isn’t always a “shot”. Sometimes it’s just a prick from a needle dipped in the inoculation solution. It depends on what you get, and where you get it. Oftentimes you can pick up your own flu mist or flu shot at Walgreens. This year it might be best to get one of each and see if the flu mist takes on. It’s not completely ineffective, that’s just the case in many instances. Another reason things like antibiotics and influenza inoculations lose effectiveness from previously used avenues of administration is the body’s own ability to learn. If your body gets sick through the nose regularly, it’s possible you’ll get additional immune system support there, which will in turn make administration of inoculation more difficult from this direction.

How To Know A Vaccine Has Been Effective

You get sick, plain and simple. A vaccine, or inoculation, is going to induce an immune system response which bears the same symptoms of the illness against which the inoculation has been delivered. The difference is severity. Whereas encountering the sickness in actuality could result in weeks of uncomfortable, life-threatening illness, with inoculations the effects are only a few hours to a few days in duration, and usually pass quickly. Your body gets a “refresher” course in the disease category, and as a result you don’t get as sick when you actually encounter it “in the wild”, to be tongue-in-cheek. A vaccine is like a buffer, or shield, or bullet-proof vest.
