He should receive a dose of tiv followed by a repeat dose in one month-all children from 6 months through 59 months of age should receive an annual influenza vaccine. this recommendation includes all health children as well as those at increased risk of complications from influenza infection. the latter category includes children with chronic pulmonary, neuromuscular, hemodynamically significant cardiac and metabolic diseases, as well, children with hemoglobinopathy, immunodeficiency, or those requiring chronic salicylate therapy. all children or = 5 years of age and adolescents who are themselves at increased risk of complications associated with influenza disease or live with, or have close contact with, an individual at increased risk. board testing point: identify appropriate candidate for routine influenza immunization and know the dosing schedule for available influenza vaccination.
