Abstract

On the basis of strong epidemiologic evidence, influenza and parainfluenza viruses are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality in young infants and children and in persons with chronic medical conditions. (1)(4)(26)(27)(35) • On the basis of research evidence, influenza vaccines are effective in preventing disease in high-risk individuals. (8)(17)(18) • On the basis of strong research evidence, influenza vaccines are safe in young infants and children 6 months or older. (8)(15) • On the basis of research evidence, the use of corticosteroids and epinephrine is beneficial in the treatment of laryngotracheitis caused by parainfluenza viruses. (44)(45)(46)(47) • Strong evidence supports the use of influenza vaccines in pregnant mothers as a strategy to prevent disease in infants younger than 6 months. (17)(18)(19)
