More Americans Urged to Get Flu Shots
Date:9/19/2007

d. The nasal vaccine had been limited to healthy children 5 and older and to adults up to age 49.

"The goal of preventing influenza is now more attainable with the availability of FluMist for younger children," Dr. Jesse L. Goodman, director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said in a prepared statement. "This approval also offers parents and health professionals a needle-free option for squeamish toddlers, who may be reluctant to get a traditional influenza shot."

Speakers at Wednesday's teleconference also said that seniors should be vaccinated with the pneumococcal vaccine to prevent pneumonia. Rates for this vaccination are also low, and panel members urged seniors to get this vaccine at the same time they are vaccinated for flu.
