ABC-7, DENVER: Hospitals Shun H1N1 FluMist Vaccine, Wait For Injections
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/21212055/detail.html
Concern That Doctors, Nurses Could Spread 'Live' Virus
"But several metro area hospitals said they won’t be taking the
FluMist because they don’t want to endanger patients.
When asked if that meant that FluMist was dangerous, Lois
VanFleet, infection prevention specialist at Exempla Good Samaritan
Medical Center in Lafayette said, "No, it's a very safe vaccine in
healthy people."
But, she said it’s made with a live virus, and that doctors
and nurses who inhaled the live virus could shed some of it on
patients whose immune systems are compromised.
Here is an article that I came across on the internet.

VanFleet said the staffs at Lutheran, St. Joseph’s and Good
Samaritan Medical Centers will wait for the injected vaccine.
"The injected vaccine is made with antibodies, not live virus," she said.
