Enrollment must include a minimum of 10,000 children 2 through 8 years of age; based on previous utilization of FluMist at NCKP, enrollment is expected to include approximately 80,000 children and adults 2 to 49 years of age.
Rates of medically attended events: hypersensitivity, seizures/convulsions [ Time Frame: From 0-3 days ]
Rates of medically attended events from 0 to 3 days: hypersensitivity, seizures/convulsions
