Flu Vaccines for People with Diabetes

  • Injectable influenza vaccines (flu shots) are recommended for use in people with diabetes. The flu shot has a long, established safety record in people with diabetes.
  • The live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the nasal spray vaccine, is recommended as an option for use in people 2 through 49 years of age who are not pregnant. But, people with some chronic medical conditions (such as diabetes) should generally not receive LAIV.
