Figure. Influenza vaccine dosing algorithm for children aged 6 months through 8 years
Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, United States, 2022-2023 influenza season
* Children aged 6 months through 8 years who require 2 doses of influenza vaccine should receive their first dose as soon as possible (including during July and August, if vaccine is available) to allow the second dose (which must be administered ≥4 weeks later) to be received, ideally, by the end of October. For children aged 8 years who require 2 doses of vaccine, both doses should be administered even if the child turns age 9 years between receipt of dose 1 and dose 2.
