However, those who missed an immunization opportunity early in the season are urged to seek immunization throughout the influenza season because immunization is beneficial in disease prevention as long as influenza is circulating in the community.

Sanofi Pasteur is working with the WHO and the CDC on the development of a separate vaccine for the novel A(H1N1) influenza, commonly referred to as the new "swine" influenza.
