CDC Preparing for New Swine Flu – Should You?

Swine Flu Vaccine

Story at-a-glance -

  • With flu season just around the corner, it’s time to review the evidence and decide if you are going to listen to the media and public health authorities and choose to receive the flu vaccine for yourself or your family
  • Recent reports warn that a new variant strain of the H3N2 influenza A virus – H3N2v – has been identified in the U.S. in children and adults who were in direct contact with pigs at county fairs. Despite CDC assurances that the swine-origin variant H3N2 virus is still principally limited to pigs and poses a very limited threat for human-to-human transmission, the FDA recently reminded the public that the influenza A H3N2 virus is one of the three viruses that was selected last spring to be included in the 2012-2013 seasonal flu vaccine formulation
  • The 2012-2013 seasonal flu vaccine distributed in the US will also contain the 2009 H1N1 influenza A virus strain, along with an influenza B virus strain – B/Wisconsin/1/2010-like virus
  • The fast-tracked pandemic 2009 H1N1 swine flu vaccine turned out to be particularly reactive – far more reactive than previous seasonal flu vaccines. Will this season’s trivalent flu vaccine – containing both H1N1 and an H3N2 virus – be as reactive?
