Nasal spray flu vaccine to hit Valley this week - Local -

Thousands of doses of nasal spray are expected to arrive at Valley doctors' offices and health facilities this week to combat the pandemic H1N1 flu virus.

The nasal spray, intended primarily for young children, is the first round of ammo against the deadly flu strain that emerged earlier this year.
