Answer

A recent clinical trial of lansoprazole in children with poorly controlled asthma without gastroesophageal symptoms showed no improvement in symptoms or lung function, but was associated with increased adverse effects. [47]

Inactivated influenza vaccine is indicated for all children with asthma older than 6 months unless specifically contraindicated.
