Composition of the 2010-2011 Seasonal Influenza Vaccine

Both the trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) and the live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) for the 2010-2011 season will include an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)-like virus, an A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2)-like virus, and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus. The A (H1N1) strain is the same strain that was used for 2009 H1N1 monovalent vaccine. The A (H3N2) component is new for this season. Global laboratory surveillance for influenza viruses is the basis for changing one or more of the vaccine strains each year.
