When potent vaccines of appropriate antigenic composition are used properly, an important degree of protection against epidemic influenza is assured. Knowledge accumulated concerning the toll exacted by epidemics of influenza recommends extension of coverage of the population by vaccination. That recommendation is especially pertinent this year, since it seems likely that a widespread epidemic of Asian influenza will occur in the United States during 1962-1963. Specific indications concerning dosage, route, schedules, and types of patients requiring first consideration are given.
