The virus of Kovid is SARS Cove-2. While H3N2 is a subtype of influenza A virus. This virus has been there for many decades and its cases come every year. There are cases of influenza in the country between January and March, while the Kovid epidemic came three years ago and the Kovid virus has also been very dangerous.

Dr. Kuldeep says that both Kovid and influenza are different types of virus. That’s why their vaccines are also different. The Covid vaccine will not help prevent influenza. The available flu vaccine can protect against influenza. The flu vaccine will protect against H3N2. This virus has no meaning with the Kovid vaccine. The flu vaccine is effective in preventing H3N2. Apart from this, it is important that people keep protecting themselves from influenza. For this, apply a mask and eat food only after washing hands.
