65+? A REGULAR FLU SHOT MAY NOT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO HELP PREVENT FLU
65+?
A REGULAR
FLU SHOT MAY NOT BE STRONG ENOUGH TO HELP PREVENT FLU

That’s why there’s the superior flu protection of FLUZONE® HIGH-DOSE QUADRIVALENT (INFLUENZA VACCINE). 4x more antigen has been clinically proven to help better protect against the flu, compared to standard-dose FLUZONE® (INFLUENZA VACCINE).*

FLUZONE® HIGH-DOSE QUADRIVALENT is a vaccine indicated for prevention of influenza disease caused by influenza A and B strains contained in the vaccine. FLUZONE® HIGH- DOSE QUADRIVALENT is given to people 65 years of age and older.

Compared to Fluzone, the most common side effects were slightly more frequent and included pain and redness where you got the shot, muscle ache, tiredness and headache.

The immune response and side effects of FLUZONE® HIGH-DOSE QUADRIVALENT were similar to the trivalent formulation in a 2017-2018 clinical study in 2,670 adults 65+. FLUZONE® HIGH-DOSE QUADRIVALENT is expected to provide better protection against the flu compared to standard-dose quadrivalent flu vaccines.

* In a clinical study conducted in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 in approximately 32,000 adults 65+, the trivalent formulation proved to be 24% more effective at preventing the flu than standard-dose Fluzone (Influenza Vaccine).
