Abstract
 The circulating A/H3N2 influenza viruses drifted significantly after the selection of strains for the 2014-2015 influenza vaccines. Also in 2014-2015, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended preferential use of live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) over inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) among children 2-8 years old.
