Flu jab 2020: Which strains of flu are protected by this year's influenza vaccine?

While the NHS will administer the vaccine, recommendations come from other organisations such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The EMA released its recommendations in April this year, ready for manufacturers to synthesise two types of jab.

People may receive either the egg-based or live attenuated trivalent or cell-based trivalent vaccines.

Scientists produce the first jab in embryonated eggs, and the second using animal cells.
