Washington - Younger children will need two doses of the vaccine against the new pandemic of H1N1 influenza, US officials said on Monday.

They said tests of Sanofi-Pasteur's swine flu vaccine showed children respond to it just as they do to seasonal flu vaccines, with children over 10 needing only a single dose but children under 9 needing two.

Separately, Sanofi said it had won a US government order for 27,3 million more doses of its vaccine and AstraZeneca's MedImmune unit said the US government has ordered 29 million more doses of its needle-free vaccine.

Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said young children will likely need to have their doses 21 days apart. But he said they could receive seasonal flu shots and H1N1 shots on the same day - something that could ease the logistics of vaccinating children multiple times.

I seem to recall that I read in prior reports that children where least likely to suffer from H1N1 than say pregnant women and the elderly ... so, why two shots for children?!

Just have to say that children, at 6 months of age get 50 times the safe limits set by the EPA for mercury and aluminum. Who are you to second guess the Pharmaceutical Companies? Hey, lets get rid of the chemical waste in the world by ingesting it. WTF! STAR & FLAG
