Abstract
Influenza is a disease in which the continuous evolution of the virus is essential for the occurrence in the human population with seasonal epidemic, and from time to time also pandemic. According to information from WHO, between 330 million and 1.575 billion individuals suffer from influenza and influenza - like virus every year throughout the world, with deaths of between 0.5 and 1 million individuals. The evolution of the influenza virus is most apparent in the case of surface glycoproteins of the virus, but it also relates to each of the eight viral gene segments, both type A and B. Modular construction of the genome of influenza virus is also responsible for the huge variation in both genotype and phenotype. According to the Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended vaccination should we all willing ranging from 6th month until the ripe old age and instill the highest percentage of the population in each country. Vaccinated against influenza we should due to clinical indications and epidemiological indication not only ACIP recommends vaccination against influenza but also 14 International Scientific Societies. In the last epidemic season - 2012/2013 instilled only 3.75% of the population, in spite of that in Poland for many influenza seasons in many regions local authorities allocate a certain amount of funds to offer free flu vaccination to people 50 - 65 years of age who are not once in the high-risk group.(original abstract)
