Spent way too long discovering this.


Was the 2015-2016 flu vaccine spot-on?

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

The 2015-2016 trivalent flu vaccine protected against:

  • an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus
  • an A/Switzerland/9715293/2013 (H3N2)-like virus
  • a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus. (This is a B/Yamagata lineage virus)

According to the latest Flu Express publication from the Taiwan CDC, the prevalent flus so far this season are:

  • A H1N1 (36.8%)
  • A H3N2 (63.2%)
  • B (25.2%)

Does this mean they got it completely right this year (for Taiwan at least)?
