1 shot to cure them all: The quest for the universal flu shot
Around this time last year no one thought much of H3N2 influenza strain A/Switzerland/9715293/2013. It was just another flu virus. In February 2014, when public health officials gathered for the World Health Organization's annual Northern Hemisphere influenza vaccine summit, most thought the Switzerland strain would be less pernicious this winter than a different strain from Texas. So when the group recommended which three strains of flu to include in the 2014–15 vaccine, this one didn't make the cut.
