Single Shot of H1N1 Vaccine May Be Enough for Kids
Date:12/21/2009

recalled by manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur Inc. because they had lost some potency, federal health officials said Tuesday.

"It goes to show you the hype about recalled children's pre-filled syringes and whether there is enough immunity may not really be a problem," he said. "Now there's this paper, which clearly shows that a single dose is enough to cause immunity in kids."

However, Siegel does not think the current two-dose protocol should be changed until there is more evidence to show that one dose is really effective.

"I don't think we should change the protocol. Two doses is ideal, but one is probably sufficient," he said.
