Update on combing H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccines


A live seasonal and a live H1N1 flu vaccine cannot be given at the same time. They need to be spaced at least 28 days apart. However, one live and one inactivated vaccine can be given at the same time. The H1N1 VIS is now available (at CDC.GOV) and it confirms that children age 9 and younger need two doses.

I am more than happy to answer any questions for you or anyone in the practice. Feel free to call or email me at any time. We are hoping to see the first shipment of H1N1 flu mist vaccine arrive by next week!
