Washington: Everyone in the United States over the age of six months should get seasonal influenza vaccines every year, federal vaccine advisers said on Wednesday.The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices made the long-awaited vote to recommend virtually universal flu vaccination -- something public health experts have long recommended.
The World Health Organization says it is too early to say the pandemic had peaked globally, although it has clearly waned in North America and Europe. Cox said the pandemic version of H1N1 had clearly replaced its distant cousin, seasonal H1N1, this year. WHO and advisers to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration chose this week to replace the seasonal H1N1 component in next season`s flu vaccine with the swine flu strain. Bureau Report
