In 2011 the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society and the Infectious Diseases Society of America published guidelines for treatment of community acquired pneumonia (CAP) in infants and children aged over 3 months. The guidelines include a clear recommendation to vaccinate all infants aged above 6 months and all children and adolescents against the flu every year, in order to prevent CAP. This is classified as a strong recommendation based on high-quality evidence.
