Now I have a major chest cold going on. My flipping ribs hurt from coughing so much, and I had to cancel my physical therapy today on my shoulder injury (which is why I went to the doctor in the first place) because I am so blasted sick. $#@#%^ flu shot!

014-2015 Influenza Vaccine Composition:

The vaccine viruses recommended by WHO for the 2014-15 northern hemisphere influenza season are the same as those for the northern hemisphere 2013-14 influenza season and 2014 southern hemisphere season.

The WHO Vaccine Composition Meeting for the 2014-2015 season was held February 17 -19, 2014 at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. On February 20, the Meeting recommended that trivalent vaccines for use in the Northern Hemisphere 2014-15 influenza season contain the following:

•an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;
•an A/Texas/50/2012 (H3N2)-like virus;
•a B/Massachusetts/2/2012-like virus.

The Meeting also recommended that quadrivalent vaccines containing two influenza B viruses contain the above three viruses and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus.

Later this month, VRBAC will meet and decide for the United States the composition for the Northern Hemisphere 2014-2015 influenza vaccine.

The WHO Vaccine Composition Meeting for Southern Hemisphere 2014 influenza season vaccines was held September 23-26, 2013, at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. The recommended composition is the same as the composition of 2013-2014 Northern Hemisphere vaccines.
