This fall the Russians will wait for a new strain of influenza virus

Upcoming fall and winter in Russia “will come” new strains of flu virus. Vaccinated against them, the Russians have not yet done. It warned the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to Popova, in order not to get sick in “flu” season, it is important to be vaccinated. Coverage of routine immunization in Russia now — at least 95%, she said. It is important not to reduce this figure.

Also Popov noted that the CPS first began monitoring and evaluation of the incidence of influenza in the summer.
