We studied the immunogenicity of the 1992-1993 trivalent split-virus influenza vaccine in pediatric solid organ transplant recipients (PSOTRs) and their healthy siblings. One month after immunization, 41 (82%) of 50 subjects achieved protective titers of antibodies to influenza A, and 30 (60%) to influenza B, rates similar to those in healthy siblings. Achievement and persistence of protective titers occurred significantly more often in children with preexisting antibody. We recommend annual… CONTINUE READING
