I got my flu shot today. The flu shots here in the USA this year protects against 3 strains of flu virus :
- A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)-like virus (the same strain as was used for 2009 H1N1 monovalent vaccines);
- A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2)-like virus;
- B/Brisbane 60/2008-like antigens.
I will also try to stay away from people that try to cough and sneeze on me! : ) – remember that the latest cough and sneeze ‘etiquette’ says to crook your arm and sneeze into your arm and shoulder, NOT into your hands !
