Oral and Intramuscular vaccination has been considered till date as the ultimate ways, but nasal route offers advantages such as ease of self administration and induction of mucosal as well as systemic immunity. Both liquid and dry powder formulations can be given via intranasal route. A great consideration has to be given while selecting a suitable device for nasal administration since the volume delivered is very low. A number of devices are available based on number of doses to be administered and type of dosage formulation.
