Errata: Vol. 54, No. RR-8

In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports, "Prevention and Control of Influenza: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)," the following errors occurred:

On page 2, the fourth bullet should read, "The 2005--06  trivalent vaccine virus strains are A/California/7/2004 (H3N2)-like, A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1)-like, and B/Shanghai/361/2002-like antigens." 

On page 6, under the section "Children," the first sentence should read, "Children aged >6 months can develop protective levels of anti-influenza antibody against specific influenza virus strains after influenza vaccination (69,70,78--81), although the antibody response among children at high risk for influenza-related complications might be lower than among healthy children (82,83)."

On page 18, under the section "LAIV Dosage and Administration," the fourth sentence should read, "Alternatively, the vaccine can be thawed in a refrigerator and stored at 2ºC--8ºC for up to 60 hours before use."

On page 20, under the section "Vaccination Before October," the last sentence should read, "For previously vaccinated children, 1 dose is needed to provide optimal protection against influenza."
