Health Experts Release H1N1 Findings

(CNN) -- One dose of H1N1 vaccine is sufficient for children over age 10, the vaccine is safe for pregnant women, and the H1N1 and seasonal vaccines often can be given simultaneously, according to a group of health experts.

The latest recommendations from the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on immunization (SAGE) were discussed Friday by Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, director of the Initiative for Vaccine Research at the World Health Organization.

The experts met Wednesday to review the current status of the H1N1 pandemic vaccines, including results of clinical trials.
