New virus strains in the 2012-2013 influenza vaccine
New virus strains in the 2012-2013 influenza vaccine will give people more incentive to get their flu shot.
This year's vaccine contains two new strains...plus the same H1N1 strain as last year.
Offer the flu vaccine to people 6 months and older starting now. Explain it's not too soon...protection should last the entire season.
