  1. The above shown are average relative abundances of the 6 most abundant phyla and 12 most abundant genera by group based on V3–V5 sequencing. Phyla are listed on the left while their corresponding genera are indented beneath. All OTUs had a ubiquity of over 90 % except Moraxella, Pseudomonas, Enterobacteriaceae, and Bacteroides. Bacteroides was notably almost exclusively present in the LAIV groups on visits 2 and 3. Cumulative genera and phyla representation is noted at the bottom
