OK - interesting. The Swiss doctors told me that the Swiss vaccine probably wouldn't protect me in Russia
Seriously? Then your Swiss doctor is talking out of his arse.

Having said that, the WHO recommends the 3 flu strains it sees as most likely to be the most prevalent during the flu season. However, this does not mean you won't contract flu from another strain not included in the vaccine. But this would be applicable as much in Switzerland as in Russia.
