NIH scientists consider fate of pandemic H1N1 flu virus – 4
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Immunization with 2010-2011 seasonal flu vaccine is being recommended for everyone older than six months, but especially urged for babies older than six months, children, teens and young adults. Dr. Anthony Fauci at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases adds, this year’s seasonal flu vaccine includes three virus strains.
Fauci: It’s a 2009 H1N1, a Perth H3N2, and a Brisbane/B. And vaccinations are available right now, so we encourage people, even now, to go and get vaccinated when it becomes available in your community.
Narrator: For more information on influenza and flu vaccines, visit niaid.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
