Annual vaccination against influenza A and B viruses is recommended for everyone ≥6 months old without a contraindication. Vaccination of all eligible persons can reduce the prevalence of influenza illness and symptoms that might be confused with those of COVID-19. Available vaccines and recommendations for specific patient populations for the 2020-2021 season are listed in Tables 2 and 3. Lower rates of influenza illness have been observed this season in the Southern Hemisphere, probably because of masking, social distancing, school closures, and travel restrictions.

Last year influenza season began in October, peaked in December (both much earlier than usual), and was associated with severe disease, particularly in children. Much of the illness was due to a circulating influenza A H3N2 strain (Fujian type) that had drifted antigenically from the H3N2 strain in the vaccine. The vaccine for the 2004-05 influenza season includes A/Wyoming/3/2003 (H3N2), which is antigenically equivalent to the Fujian strain, A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1), which is unchanged, and a new B strain, either B/Jiangsu/10/2003 or B/Jilin/20/2003, which are both antigenically equivalent to B/Shanghai/361/2002.

A new trivalent influenza vaccine for intramuscular use is available for the 1998-1999 influenza season (Morbid Mortal Weekly Rep, 47, RR-6, May 1, 1998). Last year's vaccine was less effective than usual because of the appearance of a new variant (A/Sydney/5/97) after selection of the vaccine antigens (Morbid Mortal Weekly Rep, 47:196, 1998). Antigens in the current vaccine are A/Beijing/262/95-like (H1N1); A/Sydney/5/97-like (H3N2), and B/Harbin/07/94, antigenically equivalent to B/Beijing/184/93. Both H1N1 and the H3N2 antigens are new this year. A highly publicized live attenuated influenza vaccine given by nasal spray (FluMist) has not yet been approved by the FDA and will not be available in the USA for use in the current influenza season (RB Belshe et al, N Engl J Med, 338:1405, 1998).

A new trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine is now available for the 1988-1989 influenza season (Morbid Mortal Weekly Rep, 37:357, June 17, 1988). Antigens in this year's vaccine are A/Taiwan/1/86 (H1N1), A/Sichuan/2/87 (H3N2), and B/Victoria/2/87. The A/Sichuan is a new strain that caused last year's large outbreak of the disease. The vaccine is available in the USA as a split-virus (Subvirion) or whole virus preparation from Squibb (Fluzone), and as a split-virus preparation from Parke-Davis (Fluogen) and Wyeth (Influenza Virus Vaccine, Trivalent). Split-virus vaccines may be slightly more antigenic. Vaccine from previous years should not be used.
