The Health Council of the Netherlands has revised the recommendations for influenza vaccination. The council has preserved most of the target populations of the indications defined in 1998, including asthma patients up to the age of 18 years, has cancelled the group offurunculosis patients and their families and has added four groups, i.e. healthy persons aged 60-64, care home staff, other health care workers with direct contact with patients, and family members of individuals at very high risk for complications from influenza.
