So is this due to the mutated H3N2?

I think the current fluvax has A/Texas/50/2012 (NYMC X-223) (A/Texas/50/2012 (H3N2) – like) - is this now the wrong strain?

H3N2 has drifted away from the northern hemisphere H3N2 towards the southern hemisphere H3N2, which is a better match:

Recommended composition of influenza virus vaccines for use in the 2015 southern hemisphere influenza season

25 September 2014
It is recommended that trivalent vaccines for use in the 2015 influenza season (southern hemisphere winter) contain the following:

an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;
an A/Switzerland/9715293/2013 (H3N2)-like virusa;
a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus.
It is recommended that quadrivalent vaccines containing two influenza B viruses contain the above three viruses and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus.

aA/South Australia/55/2014, A/Norway/466/2014 and A/Stockholm/6/2014 are A/Switzerland/9715293/2013-like viruses

Thanks.

So this 2015 flu vax should give better protection through a better match?
