Abstract


Influenza and acute respiratory viral infections (ARVI) are one of the most urgent medical and socio-economic problems of the country. This is due to the high prevalence of these disease, their complexity, high mortality and severe complications. The authors carried out a statistical analysis of the morbidity and mortality of the influenza and ARVI in 2015–2016 epidemic season, provided etiological interpretation of fatal cases, identified vulnerable groups of population (by age, sex, or presence of risk factors) and assessed the vaccine status of the deceased. The issues of vaccination as the most effective mean of preventing severe course, complications and death from influenza were justified.
