9.15.2020 Childhood Immunization Status (CIS) Does the live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) vaccination have to be given on the child’s second birthday?

Yes. The LAIV vaccination only counts if it is administered on the child’s second birthday. The minimum age for LAIV is 2 years, so vaccines given before that age do not meet criteria. You can view the recommendation guidelines on the CDC website (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/downloads/child/0-18yrs-child-combined-schedule.pdf).
