Taking into account the fact that many high-risk people are never vaccinated.

The researchers suggest that the alternative strategy of vaccinating children and high risk groups would require around 120 million doses of vaccine per season, taking into account the fact that many high-risk people are never vaccinated. They recommend that the federal government guarantees the purchase and distribution of so many doses of vaccine each year in order to stabilize production.

The Emory researchers cite several field studies by other groups show that mass vaccination of children can be effective in reducing influenza transmission in an entire community. Read More
