WHO | Influenza update

November 7, 2015 1:49 pm

This update is fascinating. As the flu season in the northern hemisphere approaches its interesting to note that in Australia the dominant viruses have been of the B subtype. Currently most vaccines in the northern hemisphere only protect against one B virus, although a new vaccine which protects against two is available and the Australian government is now switching to this. It seem highly likely that Northern Hemisphere governments will have to follow suit.
