The annual flu season is here.
How can you help protect
Getting the seasonal flu vaccine is a generally safe,
long-lasting and effective way to reduce the risk of influenza.
“Among adults aged 65 or older, studies show that regular
vaccine effectiveness is about half of that of healthy adults.”
YOUR SEASONAL PARTNER AGAINST THE FLU
FLUAD® is backed by a long history of global experience, with more than 90 million doses administered worldwide since 1997.
FLUAD® is generally well tolerated. The most common side effects are pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site, fever, feeling unwell, shivering, tiredness, headache, sweating, and muscle and joint pain and warmth. Side effects normally disappear without treatment after a day or two. Allergic reactions may occur.
FLUAD® should not be used in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to egg proteins or other components of the vaccine, any of the non-medicinal ingredients or in people who have had a life-threatening reaction to previous influenza vaccination. As with any vaccine, FLUAD® may not protect 100% of individuals against the flu. If Guillain-Barré syndrome has occurred within six weeks of previous influenza vaccination, the decision to give FLUAD® should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.
