H1N1 vaccine now approved for infants and children

According to the FDA, the CSL Limited’s 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine may now be used in infants and children over 6 months in age. Talk with your health care provider to see if your children should receive the H1N1 vaccine.
“Because children are among those most vulnerable to the 2009 H1N1 virus, having a broader range of children’s vaccines available is an important step in responding to the H1N1 outbreak,” said Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D., commissioner of food and drugs.
