  Influenza viruses are important human respiratory pathogens that can cause seasonal influenza epidemics and out-of-season sporadic cases and outbreaks. Influenza occurs globally with an annual attack rate estimated at 5%-10% in adults and 20%-30% in children [1]. Yet, a message on Internet during winter peak of 2018 influenza has provoked widespread discussion in Hong Kong regarding vaccination [2,3].
