The editorial, “Mistaken identity: Seasonal influenza versus influenza-like illness,” is penned by researcher Tom Jefferson of Cochrane Vaccines Field in Rome, Italy, who notes that public health experts “have been struck by the disparity between policy recommendations and the clinical evidence of the performance of inactivated influenza vaccines.” The editorial can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.
