The paper says the implications for the Northern Hemisphere are not clear but states that since most of the USA influenza-vaccine supply is now produced in eggs and the composition of the 2017-2018 Northern Hemisphere vaccine is identical to that used in Australia, it is possible that we will experience low vaccine effectiveness against influenza A (H3N2) viruses and a relatively severe influenza season if they predominate.

People with chronic hepatitis B, hepatitis C, alcoholic hepatitis or fatty liver disease, regardless of age, are all eligible for government-funded flu vaccines, Lo said.

"There seems to be an uptick, especially in the last week, in flu-like illnesses", he said.
