Saint Louis University is participating in a study to determine the best flu vaccine dose for young children.
Currently, children between 6 and 35 months of age receive a dose of 0.25 ml – half the dose given to older children and adults.
But SLU lead researcher Dr. Edwin Anderson says no study has ever been done to show that young children should get a lower dose.
