[en] Elderly people in nursing home communities are vulnerable to contagious infections, including the influenza virus. Systematic anti-influenza vaccination is an important preventive measure; however, vaccination does not provide absolute protection. We report an outbreak of influenza A infection in a well-vaccinated nursing home population. Several factors can facilitate the occurrence of this type of outbreak. This report mainly addresses the discrepancy between the circulating viral strain and strains present in the recommended vaccine.
