NEW YORK (Reuters) - Merck & Co. on Monday said U.S. regulators have approved use of its already marketed hepatitis A vaccine, Vaqta, for children as young as 12 months old, rather than the previous approved use for patients at least 2 years of age.

There were an estimated 8,800 reported cases of hepatitis A in the United States during 2002, the drugmaker said.
