ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the use of vaccines prepared for use in the northern hemisphere by U.S. travelers to the southern hemisphere. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that persons from the northern hemisphere who are advised for annual vaccination or who want to avoid influenza illness but have not yet received the influenza vaccine should consider being vaccinated to reduce the risk for influenza. It was noted that such vaccine should be given to travelers a minimum of two weeks before departure if possible.
