Texas Immunization Branch
July 24th, 2008
Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recently revised the influenza recommendations to include all children 6 months – 18 years beginning before or during the 2008-2009 influenza season if feasible, but not later than the 2009-2010 influenza season. Previously, children 5-18 years of age were only recommended to receive the influenza vaccine if they were at higher risk for influenza complications.
In addition, annual vaccination of all children aged 6 months through 4 years (59 months) continue to be a primary focus of vaccination efforts because these children are at higher risk for influenza complications compared with older children
Vaccines containing the 2008–09 trivalent vaccine virus strains include:
All 3 vaccine virus strains were changed for the 2008-2009 season
