    Stored boxes of swine influenza vaccine.


    This 2005 photograph of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Dr. Terrence Tumpey, one of the organization’s staff microbiologists and a member of the National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID), showed him examining reconstructed 1918 Pandemic Influenza Virus inside a specimen vial containing an orange-colored supernatant culture medium.


    This 1976 photograph showed an adult receiving a vaccination with a jet injector during the swine flu nationwide vaccination campaign, which began October 1, 1976. This rare influenza strain, “A/New Jersey/76 (Hsw1N1) influenza virus” (swine flu), against which this individual was being vaccinated, was reported among soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey, where one patient died. A very similar strain killed 500,000 people in the United States, and more than 20 million worldwide, during the pandemic of 1918-1919. In response to the 1976 outbreak, in order to prevent another epidemic, 50 million Americans were vaccinated during a 10 week period, setting an immunization world record.


    Under a plate magnification of 37,800X, this transmission electron micrograph (TEM) depicted the A/New Jersey/76 (Hsw1N1) virus, while in the virus’ first developmental passage through a chicken egg. Swine Influenza (swine flu) is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza that regularly cause outbreaks of influenza among pigs. Swine flu viruses cause high levels of illness and low death rates among pigs. Swine influenza viruses may circulate in swine throughout the year, but most outbreaks among swine herds occur during the late fall and winter months similar to humans. The classical swine flu virus (an influenza type A H1N1 virus) was first isolated from a pig in 1930. See PHIL 10143 for a colorized version of this image.

    This negative stained transmission electron micrograph (TEM) shows recreated 1918 influenza virions that were collected from supernatants of 1918-infected Madin-Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) cells cultures 18 hours after infection.


    This preliminary negative stained transmission electron micrograph (TEM) depicted some of the ultrastructural morphology of the A/CA/4/09 swine flu virus.
