Re: Flu vaccination before traveling?

Incorrect.
Each year the WHO meets and decides which strains will be included in the upcoming yearly flu vaccination. That info is passed onto the vaccine manufacturers, who must formulate their vaccine accordingly.

Edit: I know as my previous job was to write and help in the design of the required influenza vaccine clinical study each year.
OK - interesting. The Swiss doctors told me that the Swiss vaccine probably wouldn't protect me in Russia
