The Final Four: 2018-19 Flu Strains
March 30, 2018
March Madness NCAA Tournament finals are down to the wire. Who will win? Kansas, Villanova, Michigan or Loyola-Chicago? While the NCAA Tournament has had its fair share of surprises (did Sister Jean Schmidt's blessing help bring No. 11 Loyola-Chicago this far?), the upcoming 2018-2019 season has surprised us with a couple of its own.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has released their recommendations for the upcoming season, which includes two new strains for the 2018-2019 northern hemisphere.
2018-2019 Final Four
WHO recommends that quadrivalent vaccines for use in the 2018-2019 northern hemisphere influenza season contain the above strains. The influenza B virus component of trivalent vaccines for use in the 2018-2019 northern hemisphere influenza season will be the NEW B/Colorado/06/2017-like virus of the B/Victoria/2/87-lineage.
Will the 2018-2019 flu strains grab the defensive rebound after the 2017-2018 flu vaccine missed its mark with only 36 percent effectiveness, according to a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration "says it wants to make the 2018-19 flu shot more successful than the previous year's."
