Clinical Trial: Study of a Flu Vaccine in Children
This study is no longer recruiting patients.
This study tests the safety and effectiveness of a flu vaccine in school children. School children are usually the first members of a community to come down with the flu, and they often give the flu to their younger siblings, parents, and grandparents. It is hoped that giving school children a flu vaccine can help prevent the spread of the flu to other members of the community.
