In brief: Considered dangerous

Approved for use in children >1y, delirium & self injury have been reported as side effects in children.
Concern for possible fatalities due to excessive central nervous system penetration in lab studies limit early use. The practice of cocooning, having everyone in a newborns circle vaccinated for flu is the common recommendation for preventive care. Hospital care of infant cases is standard.
