While this journal isn’t sure what to think of Mr. Sardi’s claims for immune boosting vitamins (bottom chart), the salient feature of this article for our purposes is the study he has found in the medical journal Euro Surveillance.

According to a newly released report, the flu season for the H1N1 pandemic flu has already peaked and the federal government’s vaccination program would only reduce the number of infected individuals by 6% by the end of the year.
Small children, who take up to four weeks to produce sufficient antibodies, would not likely experience any benefit from vaccination if they were to undergo vaccination now (late October 2009). The full report, published in the journal Euro Surveillance, can be found here.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the current vaccine used for H1N1 pandemic strain only produces immunity among 25% of children age 6—35 months and 36% for children age 3—9 years. So the vaccine is largely ineffective in young children.
