      Licensed influenza vaccines include inactivated or live-attenuated influenza type A and B viruses, with three or four subtypes per vaccine. Inactivated influenza vaccines (IIV) are administered by injection; live-attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIV) are delivered as nasal spray. Only IIV’s are licensed for children younger than age two years. Influenza virus has been causing recurrent epidemics of febrile respiratory disease for at least the past years, and efforts to prevent influenza by immunization have been underway for more than 70 years [].Annually, as many as 51 deaths in the United States are attributable to influenza [].In children aged influenza hospitalization rates are as high as 60 to 90 per

    Current Vaccine Strategies for the Control of Human Influenza Infections. IAVs cause annually recurrent epidemics that are responsible for mild to severe respiratory illness or even death in humans, which are mainly associated with complications after bacteria secondary infections [25,26,27], representing a threat to public health and global economy [28,29,30]. Seasonal influenza vaccines refer to vaccines that are updated yearly and that protect against currently circulating influenza viruses. What is sometimes referred to as "pre-pandemic vaccines", contain antigens that correspond to H5N1 influenza strains, as these are thought to be most likely to cause a .

      The Flu Vaccine Situation in Brazil. The seasonal influenza season in Brazil is at its peak between the 18 th and 19 th weeks, falling in April and May, while it is later, at the 25 th to 27 th. Next-generation vaccines that utilize T cells could potentially overcome the limitations of current influenza vaccines that rely on antibodies to provide narrow subtype-specific protection and are prone to antigenic mismatch with circulating strains. Evidence from animal models shows that T cells can provide heterosubtypic protection and are crucial for immune control of influenza virus.

New technologies can revolutionize influenza vaccine design, production, and delivery. In the near future, advances should reduce vaccine production time, provide enhanced protection, and end misma Cited by:   4. A Vaccine That Prevents Influenza Virus Transmission.

From a public health perspective, an optimal influenza vaccine would both prevent morbidity and mortality in individuals and also inhibit transmission in a population, which currently licensed IIVs cannot reliably achieve [64,65].The indirect benefits of vaccination have been documented many times in epidemiological by:   Find information on coronavirus disease (COVID).

U.S. Flu Vaccine Effectiveness Networks. CDC has been working with researchers at universities and hospitals since the flu season to estimate how well flu vaccine works through observational studies using laboratory-confirmed flu.

The vaccine seed viruses to be generated are based on the live attenuated cold-adapted influenza virus vaccines developed by Maassab and colleagues at the University of Michigan in the s and used as the basis for the FluMist vaccine (MedImmune, Inc., Gaithersburg, MD, USA) now licensed in the United States for persons 5–49 years of age.

Since then, close surveillance has shown that GBS occurs at a very low rate of up to 1 in 1 million doses of influenza vaccine. 90 If GBS is suspected it is preferable that an experienced clinician confirms the diagnosis so recommendations can be made regarding future influenza vaccination.

The most significant of these events is the emergence of antigenically novel influenza A viruses in humans, leading to pandemics.
