Influenza Vaccine for 2018-2019

JAMA. 2018;320(20):2143-2144. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.17725

It is flu season. There is broad agreement that vaccination against the flu benefits individuals and the population at large. A comprehensive review of the various vaccinations and recommendations for administering them was published in the October 22, 2018, issue of The Medical Letter. Here we reprint some of the information from that review that will be useful for JAMA readers (Tables 1 and 2). For complete coverage of the influenza vaccine, including information on the timing, composition, effectiveness, population, adverse effects, and vaccine-vaccine interaction, please refer to the article.
