These supplemental recommendations provide guidelines for a monovalent influenza A(H1N1) vaccine for protection against a newly emerged variant of influenza that has recently caused outbreaks among children and young adults in Asia. Guidance is provided for the use of this monovalent vaccine, which contains 15 µg of A/Taiwan/1/86(H1N1) antigen, as a supplement to the standard trivalent influenza vaccine. Recommendations for the use of the standard trivalent influenza vaccine for the 1986-1987 season and the use of antivirale for the prevention and treatment of influenza remain in effect and should be referred to in conjunction with this supplemental recommendation. The trivalent vaccine is intended to protect against currently circulating strains of influenza A(H3N2) and influenza B viruses and may provide partial protection against the new influenza A(H1N1) variant.
