Both vaccines and placebo controls were studied in 12,500 men in the 6 months after the Asian influenza pandemic of 1957. Infections by both viruses were demonstrable throughout most of this period. Influenza vaccine, sub-cutaneously, was as efficacious as vaccine given intracutaneously (in 2 sites), in preventing the reporting febrile respiratory illness to sick call.
