A federal advisory panel is recommending that all children get flu shots.
The panel voted Wednesday in Atlanta to expand annual flu shots to all children except infants younger than six months.
That means about 30 million more children could be getting vaccinated.
The panel's advice is routinely adopted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC issues vaccination guidelines to doctors and hospitals
Flu shots are now recommended for people considered to be at highest risk of death or serious illness from the flu. That list includes children ages 6 months to 5 years, adults 50 and older, and people with weakened immune systems
The panel says that should be expanded to include children up to age 18.
