On October 24, the State Council’s Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism held a press conference to introduce the strengthening of the prevention and control of the autumn and winter epidemics and the implementation of vaccination. Wang Huaqing, chief expert of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s immunization program, said at the meeting that China’s surveillance results show that since March 2021, the country’s influenza activity has been higher than the same period last year. Especially since September, the level of influenza activity in some southern provinces of China has shown an obvious upward trend. Experts comprehensively study and judge that there may be a risk of influenza pandemic this winter and next spring, and if the new crown epidemic occurs again, there may be a superimposed risk.

Wang Huaqing pointed out that influenza vaccine is the most effective way to prevent influenza, especially after vaccination for infants and the elderly can reduce the risk of serious complications. At the same time, vaccination with the new crown vaccine cannot replace the flu vaccine. The technical guidelines for influenza vaccination in China have identified the priority groups for influenza vaccination. The elderly and children are the key groups for influenza prevention and control.
Wang Huaqing emphasized that in the technical guidelines for new crown virus vaccination, it is currently recommended that the interval between influenza vaccine and new crown vaccine be at least 14 days.
“In addition to paying attention to the time interval during the vaccination process, there are also the following points to pay attention to: First, the previous flu vaccine, especially the vaccine of the same technical route, if there is an acute allergic reaction, the follow-up flu vaccine cannot be vaccinated. Second, During the vaccination process, the recipients should truthfully report their health status and medication history to the vaccination doctor. It is currently seen that some drugs will affect the effect of influenza vaccination. Third, there are two main types of influenza vaccines currently inoculated: live attenuated vaccines, Inactivated vaccines. These two types of vaccines have different application targets, and the characteristics and contraindications of the vaccines are also different. Therefore, you should explain your situation to your doctor before vaccination, so that you can determine which technical route is more suitable for influenza vaccine. IV. After being vaccinated with the flu vaccine, you have to stay on the scene for 30 minutes.” Wang Huaqing said.
