One Shot for Older Kids

One Shot for Older Kids

Teens, as well as adults, are now able to receive a one shot vaccine for H1N1. It was previously thought that a one shot vaccination was ill advised for those under 18. A new study shows that 76% of kids older than ten have a strong enough response to the vaccination. Such results are acceptable under federal standards. Children younger than ten are still recommended to take the two dose vaccine, as the one shot is proven to only be 25% effective in that age group. For more information, click the link below:
