CDC Announces 2011 Flu Vaccine Recommendations

The vaccine recommended forِ the coming flu season willِ protect againstِ the sameِ three viruses thatِ lastِ year’s flu vaccine did, a report fromِ the Centers forِ Disease Control andِ Prevention (CDC) saidِ today.
Still, thoseِ who received theِ influenza vaccine lastِ season shouldِ getِ vaccinated again, becauseِ the vaccine’s protective effect declines overِ time, saidِ the agency’s Advisory Committee onِ Immunization Practices.
The vaccine includes threeِ strains ofِ the virus, oneِ ofِ which isِ derived fromِ the 2009 H1N1 virus, theِ committee said.
