The Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine and Pork Gelatine

The nasal spray flu vaccine is given as a single dose of nasal spray squirted up each nostril. Not only is it needle-free (a big advantage for children), the nasal spray works even better than the injected flu vaccine with fewer side effects.

It’s quick and painless and will mean your child is less likely to become ill if they come into contact with the flu virus. Its brand name is Fluenz Tetra.

The nasal spray flu vaccine is also for children aged two to 18 who are “at risk” from flu, such as children with long-term health conditions. Some of these children will be offered two doses of the vaccine.

The injectable flu vaccine will continue to be offered to those aged 65 and over, pregnant women, carers and adults and babies (aged six months to two years) with a long-term medical condition. The injectable version does not contain pork gelatine.

The nasal spray flu vaccine for the 2014/2015 campaign in the UK, contains a highly refined pork gelatine content. Would you accept this as a practicing Muslim?

What is Halal in Medical Terms?

This article provides an overview of the Islamic belief system and relates it to the consumption of medical products.
In Islam, any food and drink that can be consumed by a Muslim is termed as Halal.
The general principle of Sharia Law, which is the social, legal and moral framework of Islam, is that all food and drink is halal, unless there is a clear prohibition. For medicine to be deemed halal, the ingredients and method of production that is used, must be thoroughly checked to ensure they adhere to Islamic laws. For food to be deemed halal especially meat, the slaughter and preparation of animals for consumption must be in accordance to Sharia Law. However, the biggest challenge for Muslims seems to be obtaining details on ingredients and sources from manufacturers of pharmaceutical products.
