The AAP recently announced that children can be vaccinated with either an inactivated influenza vaccine or a live-attenuated influenza vaccine for the 2019-2020 influenza season.
Last year, the academy recommended that children aged 6 months and older should be vaccinated with the inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV), which is administered via injection. The live-attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), which is sprayed into the nose and often preferred by parents and patients, was only recommended if the child refused IIV. This update is in agreement with the CDC’s influenza vaccine recommendations.
