Latest new flu: Swine flu was the latest flu to be in circulation, it started in 2009 and has remained one of the predominant strains in circulation since then. It differs from previous strains in that younger adults and pregnant women were most severely affected. It has been included in this year's flu shot and will remain in the 2011 - 2012 vaccine.
