In 2007 the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended that all children ages 6-59 months and their close contacts receive the influenza vaccine. Annual influenza vaccination was also recommended for persons with certain risk factors, health care personnel, and other persons in close contact with persons in groups at high risk. In 2008, the ACIP expanded its recommendation to include annual influenza vaccination of children aged 5-18 years beginning in the 2008-09 influenza season.
