"Predictions about seasonal flu remind me weather forecast. But, nevertheless, this year we do not expect such major changes of flu strains as last year. And those vaccines that are now commercially available for the prevention of influenza contain the expected epidemiologically relevant viruses and strains. If you truly do not want to get the flu, you should get vaccinated," Zadorozhna said.
