Errata: Vol. 59, No. RR-8
In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports "Prevention and Control of Influenza with Vaccines: Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), 2010," multiple errors occurred. On page 3, in the second column, the fifth sentence of the first full paragraph should read, "However, randomized placebo-controlled trials cannot be performed ethically in populations for which vaccination already is recommended, and in this context, observational studies that assess outcomes associated with laboratory-confirmed influenza infection also can provide important vaccine or antiviral safety and effectiveness data." On page 10, in the second column, the sixth sentence of the paragraph headed "Evaluating Influenza Vaccine Efficacy and Effectiveness Studies" should read, "Randomized placebo-controlled trials that measure laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections as the outcome are the most persuasive evidence of vaccine efficacy, but such trials cannot be conducted ethically among groups recommended to receive vaccine annually." On page 34, the first footnote for Figure 3 should read, "Reprinted with permission. American Academy of Pediatrics, Committee on Infectious Diseases. Policy statement: recommendations for prevention and control of influenza in children, 2010--2011. Available at http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/reprint/peds.2010-2216v1."
