ABSTRACT
Influenza disease continues to cause thousands of deaths in the United States. Due to the burden of influenza hospitalizations among children, inactivated influenza vaccine is now routinely recommended for children age 6 to 59 months. Live attenuated influenza vaccine is available for healthy persons 5 to 49 years of age. Other recent developments include routine vaccination of pregnant women with inactivated vaccine and an emphasis on the vaccination of health care workers.
