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 2018 influenza season should contain the following:
· an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09-like strain
· an A/Singapore/INFIMH-16-0019/2016 (H3N2)-like strain
· a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like strain
· a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like strain
A 2018 quadrivalent influenza vaccine from FluQuadri and Fluarix Tetra is now available for ordering from Dorevitch Pathology.
