Interview Transcript (slightly modified for readability)

“The questions about the number of vaccines children get is not unique to influenza and I think the best means that we have in addressing those issues is really just providing all of the information there is. [Such as] what the vaccines protect against, what the adverse events are, that we know of, and especially, working with the doctors who administer the vaccines to be able to answer those questions for their patients.”
