In this season all is absolutely differently. First of all, vaccination in which course an inoculation from a flu have made more than 34 million persons has been spent. Besides, H1N1 it is already familiar to our immune system so, it will be difficult to it to repeat and, especially, to surpass last year`s result. It is necessary to notice also that according to official figures, the resulted Main health officer of Russia Gennady Onishchenko, among all surveyed on the middle of January the virus of a flu And (H1N1) has been revealed at 4,6 %, a flu virus In – at 6,3 % of the diseased.
