Each year, flu vaccines are tailored to match the expected strains that circulate around the world. The flu vaccine is constantly changing, and the immunity following vaccination wanes after one year.
According to the World Health Organisation*, quadrivalent vaccines for use in the southern hemisphere during the 2017 influenza season should contain the following:
· an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus
· an A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus
· a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus
· a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus
A 2017 quadrivalent influenza vaccine is now available for ordering from Dorevitch Pathology.
