Influenza (the flu) is a highly contagious disease, usually prevented by vaccination and treated by managing symptoms. Spread by body fluids from infected people, symptoms include a runny nose and sore throat. Typically older adults and young children are those who are most likely at risk and may feel the symptoms more severely.
This study invites healthy children aged 6 months to 9 years to participate. Participants are required to attend either 1-2 study visits depending on their previous influenza vaccinations as well as phone calls after each visit and may be reimbursed for their time and cost.
