|Over the past two flu seasons, vaccinating children five and younger did not reduce the number of child hospitalizations or doctor's visits linked to influenza, according to results of a new study|
|More children have died from flu because they also had staph infections, according to a new government report that urges parents to have their kids get the flu shot.|
|They reported that federal recommendations about the lengths of needles don't take into account the bodies of children. Nearly four in 10 babies under the age of 1 would suffer from overpenetration of needles if they got injections in the thigh with the size needles that are typically recommended, the study said. One-inch needles are also recommended, and they'd cause overpenetration 11 percent of the time, according to the study.
Patients who got vaccinated in the shoulder with 1-inch needles would have overpenetration 61 percent of the time, the study reported. For two other recommended needle lengths, 5/8-inch and 7/8-inch, the rates of overpenetration were estimated at 11 percent and 55 percent, respectively.
