The homeopathic strain of Influenzinum is obtained following a process of dilution and dynamization of influenza. This is the flu shot of the year, so homeopaths are using biotherapy to prepare the strain.
As the flu virus mutates easily, the vaccine differs each year. The compositions of the vaccines must therefore follow the recommendations of the WHO or the World Health Organization. For the 2020 – 2021 season, here are the WHO recommendations for countries in the northern hemisphere:
- A(H1N1) pdm09: A/Guangdong-Maonan/SWL1536/2019 (H1N1)pdm09 or A/Hawaii/70/2019 (H1N1)pdm09
- A(H3N2): A/Hong Kong/2671/2019 (H3N2) or A/Hong Kong/45/2019 (H3N2)
- B: B/Washington/02/2019 (B/Victoria/2/87)
- B (tetravalent): B/Phuket/3073/2013 (B/Yamagata/16/88)
It should be noted that the composition of the homeopathic strain should follow these recommendations. So, unlike other homeopathic remedies, which have a general duration of 5 years, Influenzanum has a maximum period of use of 1 year. From pharmacies, this medicine is available at the same time as the seasonal flu vaccine.
