Questions and Answers About This Year’s Flu Season - Jan 2018

New York Times Jan 18, 2018

  • "This season is closely paralleling the 2014-2015 season, which was dominated by the same H3N2 flu strain and was also “moderately severe.”"
  • "Almost 6 percent of all Americans seeking medical care now have flu symptoms. "
    "The 2014-15 and 2012-13 flu seasons also peaked at close to 6 percent. "
  • "Even in a mild year, flu kills about 12,000 Americans, the C.D.C. estimates. In a bad year, it kills up to 56,000."
  • "The shot’s efficacy here has not yet been calculated because the virus is still spreading, but experts expect it to be about 30 percent."

  • "And in the week ending January 6, 22.7 out of every 100,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. were for flu—twice the number of the previous week"
  • "The dominant circulating strain this year is H3N2, which hits humans harder than other strains. Scientists don’t really know why, but flu seasons where H3N2 have dominated in the past have tended to be worse"
  • "Second, the vaccine. This year’s vaccine was only 10 percent effective against the problematic H3N2 strain in Australia"
  • "This does not mean that the flu vaccine this year is useless. It still protects against other strains of flu such as H1N1 and B virus, and it provides at least some immunity to H3N2."

  • “Another reason for concern is that Australia had a severe flu season this year.”
  • "We generally follow in our season what happened in the Southern Hemisphere, such as in Australia," Fauci says. "And Australia had a particularly bad influenza season for a number of reasons."
  • “A major reason for Australia's struggle is that the main strain of flu circulating there was one known as H3N2. That kind of flu virus tends to make people sicker than other strains, especially the elderly.”
  • “To make things worse, the flu vaccine appears to have been only about 10 percent effective against that strain in Australia.”
  • “"The mutation just happened to be in a very bad spot on the virus to make it essentially be a mismatch for the vaccine,”
  • “Last year, the vaccine was 32 percent effective against the H3N2 flu strain in the United States.”
