Reuters is reporting that All U.S. ChildrenÂ should get seasonal flu shot: CDC.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – All U.S. children aged 6 months to 18 years should get a seasonal influenza vaccine every year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday.
The CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat said the agency was strengthening recommendations for children to get the vaccination against seasonal influenza, especially with fears that the new H1N1 virus will be added to the already expected burden of seasonal flu.
I don’t see anything in the linked article about people being “forced” to comply. Â That being said, I think it’s a very likely possibility, but there’s no mention of it here. Â Just makes the title seem unnecessarily sensationalized.
yeah, i tried to Drudge this one out
We already have forced vaccinations for school-aged kids, so i figured it would be ok.
