The quadrivalent flu vaccine protects against the four flu strains that have been deemed most likely to cause outbreaks this winter.
In the past, vaccine manufacturers were only able to include three strains in each season’s vaccine (trivalent vaccines). The trivalent vaccine includes two types of flu A strain and one of flu B, while the quadrivalent includes two types of A and two B strains (available since 2013).
A number of manufacturers have started to produce Quadrivalent vaccines, covering all four strains. During the 2018-19 flu season the following strains are included:
During the 2017-18 season, the trivalent vaccine was widely used by the NHS, but the fourth strain caused most outbreaks during the winter, and 60% of all clinical cases. This year, quadrivalent vaccines are being more widely recommended, in the UK as well as in many other countries.
