    see part I.

    In this year's vaccine, influenza A is well matched (two of the three strains in the vaccine) and B is not.

    It is true that the vaccine is being decided by committee (as we speak, for next year) based on best guesses. And it is true that SE Asia is the big reservoir for flu viruses. but as research and technology improves, so does 'best guesses'.
