The American Academy of Pediatrics has recently updated its guidance for influenza vaccination for children during the 2021-2022 influenza season. Do you offer vaccination to all your patients aged 6 months or older who do not have contraindications?
The American Academy of Pediatrics has released new recommendations for preventing and controlling influenza during the 2021-2022 season, especially in light of the continued COVID-19 pandemic.
