With Swine Flu On The Wane, Health Officials Look Ahead

As the first influenza pandemic of this century appears to have turned a corner, preparations are already under way for next flu season.

Today the World Health Organization picked the strains to go in next fall's Northern Hemisphere flu vaccine. The ingredients: the pandemic H1N1, or swine flu, virus that now predominates almost everywhere, an H3N2 that's circulating in parts of Asia, and an influenza-B virus now causing most Chinese flu.

Next Monday the Food and Drug Administration is expected to follow suit.

On Tuesday, WHO is convening its Emergency Advisory Committee to ponder if the world has entered a "post-peak period" of the pandemic. "We hope the worst is behind us and that the overall trend will be going down," said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, WHO's chief flu official.

For more on these developments, listen to a conversation I had with Linda Wertheimer on Thursday's Morning Edition.
