Increasing Uptake of Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Among Children in the United States, 2008–2014

This article, published in Vaccine, reports on a study to examine the use of live attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIV) in US children aged two to eight years. The authors found increased LAIV usage over inactivated influenza vaccines in all sites studied, suggesting formulation acceptability and a preexisting trend that offers a favorable context for implementation of the 2014 preferential recommendation of LAIVs for this age group by the US Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
