On Wednesday, Feb. 21, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted 12-2 in support of influenza vaccination using nasal spray for the 2018-2019 influenza season.
This recommendation comes after the committee (ACIP) removed the recommendation of the quadrivalent live-attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV4) for the last two influenza seasons, due to its relatively lower efficacy. The ACIP’s newest action may have a positive influence on vaccination rates in pediatric patients, according to experts interviewed by Infectious Diseases in Children.
