H1N1 Vaccination strategies

This was published In “The Lancet”.May be informative.

The vaccination strategies according to priority has been defined by WHO.
Perhaps the way forward is to make children the highest priority group for receipt of the first batches of vaccine. However, the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) have defined the priority groups for receipt of vaccine in the following order: health-care workers, pregnant women, individuals aged more than 6 months with chronic medical conditions, healthy young adults aged 15—49 years, healthy children, healthy adults aged 490—65 years old, and healthy adults aged more than 65 years. With most governments likely to follow this advice, school children are a long way back in the queue.
