UPDATE: SEASONAL INFLUENZA VACCINATION 2018-2019

World Health Organization data indicate that influenza A viruses were by far the most common cause of illness in the Southern Hemisphere’s 2018 flu season, with subtype A (H1N1) pdm09 dominating overall.

Last flu season was deadliest since 1976, CDC says: The US saw about 80,000 deaths related to flu and complications from the illness last winter, the most since 1976, according to the CDC. Nearly all the deaths — 90% — were in people at least 65 years old.

Get flu shot by end of Oct., CDC advises: The CDC is calling for people ages 6 months and older to be vaccinated against seasonal flu by the end of October. Because it takes about two weeks after vaccination for people to develop antibodies against influenza, they should receive the vaccine before the virus starts circulating nearby. Flu vaccination is the best way to protect those most at risk.

Immunization Recommendations for 2018-2019 Flu Season

• Recommendation for vaccination: Routine annual vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and above who do not have contraindications.

The WHO recommends the following for the Northern Hemisphere’s quadrivalent (four-strain) vaccines:

  • For H1N1, an A/Michigan/45/2015-like virus
  • For H3N2, an A/Singapore/INFIMH-16-0019/2016-like virus
  • For B Victoria, a B/Colorado/06/2017-like virus
  • For B Yamagata, a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus

The Japanese vaccine will contain the following four-strains:

  • For H1N1, an A/Singapore / GP1908 / 2015 pdm09-like virus
  • For H3N2, an A/Singapore / INFIMH-16-0019 / 2016-like virus
  • For B Victoria, a B / Maryland / 15 / 2016-like virus
  • For B Yamagata, a B / Phuket / 3073 / 2013-like virus

• Timing of vaccination: Vaccination should occur before the onset of influenza activity in the community.

• Travelers: Travelers who wish to reduce the risk for influenza infection should consider influenza vaccination, preferably 2 weeks before departure.

Please contact our office for details and appointments. Special arrangements can be made for large groups or companies that require all employees to be vaccinated.
