Author:

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recently voted to expand the recommended ages for annual flu vaccines to include all children from 6 months to 18 years. Current pediatric recommendations call for flu vaccines for children 6 months to 5 years. The CDC usually follows the advice of the committee.
