ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have announced the seasonal influenza vaccination for Americans above six months of age in February 2010. The decision was influenced by the occurrence of the H1N1 virus in 2009, which significantly affected adults aging from 19-49 years old. Meanwhile, the formulation of the vaccines was similar to those used in 2009 except for the added antigen of the type B virus.
