As noted above, the major difficulty is that the most immunogenic part of the flu virus - the hemagglutinin proteins on the surface of the virion - is the part that mutates, or drifts, from year to year, which is why vaccines need to be constantly updated.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), show how much of an outlier it was: Previously, seasonal outbreaks since 2010, had killed between 12,000 and 56,000 and caused between 140,000 and 710,000 hospitalizations. Right now, it's early in the flu season and health professionals have just started tracking flu cases and the types of strains that are most common, Illuzzi explains. They collect data in regards to the surveillance of the viruses, laboratory and clinicals studies and their availability of vaccine viruses.

Flu season is almost upon us and people in Cumbria who are the most vulnerable to flu are being urged to get their free flu vaccination.

Flu season runs from October until May, peaking in January and February. The vaccine is safe and effective.

Need to get your flu vaccine?

Aoki is in favour of people with both strong and poor immune systems in taking the vaccine, and says it's "the best tool we have".

"People owe it to themselves to get a flu jab before winter, to protect their own health, but also to protect the health of their family, work colleagues and friends from the debilitating effects of the flu".

During the 2017-2018 season, 147,901 influenza vaccines were distributed. As we've discussed, flu vaccines fight certain strains of the flu that are expected to be particularly virulent.
