      • Hospitalization in the past year for congestive heart failure or emphysema.
      • Chronic Hepatitis B or C
      • Recent or current use of immunosuppressive medication, including systemic glucocorticoids (corticosteroid nasal sprays and topical steroids are permissible in all groups; inhaled steroid use is not permissible)
      • Participants in close contact with anyone who has a severely weakened immune system and requires a protective environment. Exposure to such persons should be avoided for 7 days after receipt of LAIV. [If yes, may be ineligible for Groups A,B, C and F].
      • Malignancy, other than squamous cell or basal cell skin cancer (includes solid tumors such as breast cancer or prostate cancer with recurrence in the past year, and any hematologic cancer such as leukemia).
      • Autoimmune disease (including rheumatoid arthritis treated with immunosuppressive medication such as Plaquenil, methotrexate, prednisone, Enbrel) which, in the opinion of the investigator, might jeopardize volunteer safety or compliance with the protocol
      • History of blood dyscrasias, renal disease, or hemoglobinopathies requiring regular medical follow up or hospitalization during the preceding year
      • Use of any anti-coagulation medication such as Coumadin or Lovenox, or anti-platelet agents such as aspirin (except up to 325 mg. per day), Plavix, or Aggrenox must be reviewed by investigator to determine if this would affect the volunteer's safety.

      • Receipt of blood or blood products within the past 6 months or planned used during the study
      • Medical or psychiatric condition or occupational responsibilities that preclude participant compliance with the protocol.

      • Receipt of live, attenuated vaccine within 60 days prior to enrollment of planned vaccination prior to completion of last study visit

      • Donation of the equivalent of a unit of blood within 6 weeks prior to enrollment or planned donation prior to completion of the last visit
      • Any condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, might interfere with volunteer safety, study objectives or the ability of the participant to understand or comply with the study protocol.
      This is a study of healthy children and adults receive the current seasonal influenza vaccine. The volunteers were enrolled into one of 7 groups over a 5-year period. Immunization is administered; blood samples and NP swabs are collected at various time points based on groups assigned.

      Group A (LAIV4/annual return): Up to six 2-4 year old volunteers are given a quadrivalent live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV4). All participants in this group are asked to return annually for flu immunization and blood samples on Day 0 and Day 7 post immunization . Vaccine naive children returned 30 days later for a second immunization per standard of care. This group was discontinued in year 3 due to Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations against the use of LAIV.

      Group B (LAIV4/ single year): Up to twenty 2-4 year old volunteers were given a quadrivalent live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV4). Volunteers will participate for a single year. All participants in this group were immunized on Day 0. Blood samples were taken on on Day 0 and Day 7 post immunization. Vaccine naive children returned 30 days later for a second immunization per standard of care. This group was discontinued in year 3 due to ACIP recommendations against the use of LAIV.

      Group C (LAIV4/NP swab group): Up to twenty 2-4 year old volunteers were given a quadrivalent live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV4). Nasopharyngeal samples (NP) swabs were collected Day 1 and 21 and 28 post immunization. No blood was collected for this group. Vaccine naive children returned 30 days later for a second immunization per standard of care. This group was discontinued in year 3 due to ACIP recommendations against the use of LAIV.

      Group D (IIV4/annual return): Up to six 6 month-23 month old (inclusive) volunteers are given a quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV4). All participants in this group are asked to return annually for flu immunization and blood samples on Day 0 and Day 7 post immunization. Vaccine naive children returned 30 days later for a second immunization per standard of care.

      Group E (IIV4/single year): Up to twenty 6 month-23 month old (inclusive) volunteers were given a quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV4). Volunteers participate for a single year. All participants in this group were immunized on Day 0. Blood samples were taken on on Day 0 and Day 7 post immunization. Vaccine naive children returned 30 days later for a second immunization per standard of care.

      Group F (LAIV4/single year) Up to forty 9-13 year old (n= 20) and 18-49 year old (n= 20) volunteers were given live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV). Blood samples were collected Days 0, 7, and 28 and NP swabs were collected Days 1 and 28. This group was discontinued in year 3 due to ACIP recommendations against the use of LAIV.

      Group G (IIV4/single year) Up to forty, 9-13 year old (n= 20) and 18-49 year old (n= 20) volunteers were given a quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV4). Blood samples were collected Day 0,7, and 28
