2009 Influenza A (H1N1) Monovalent Vaccines for Children

This editorial, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, comments on new immunogenicity data on 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1) vaccines for children. The data suggest that a single dose of the vaccine offers protection for at least some children, but the authors emphasize that the findings are not generalizable for all children and advise following current recommendations for administering two doses to infants and young children while awaiting definitive vaccine effectiveness data. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
