About Influenza

Influenza is a serious respiratory illness that is easily spread and can lead to severe complications, even death. Each year in the U.S., 5 to 20 percent of the population gets the flu and an estimated 226,000 people are hospitalized from influenza-related complications. Influenza seasons are unpredictable and can be severe. Depending on virus severity during the influenza season, annual deaths can range from a low of 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. Combined with pneumonia, influenza is the nation's eighth leading cause of death. Vaccination is safe and effective and the best way to help prevent influenza and its complications.

About Fluzone Vaccines

Fluzone, Fluzone High-Dose, and Fluzone Intradermal vaccines are indicated for active immunization against influenza disease caused by influenza virus subtypes A and type B contained in the vaccines.

Fluzone vaccine is intended for persons 6 months of age and older. Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is intended for persons 65 years of age and older. The indication for Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is based on the superior immune response elicited by Fluzone High-Dose vaccine relative to Fluzone vaccine. Data demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose vaccine relative to Fluzone vaccine are not available. Fluzone Intradermal vaccine is approved for use in persons 18 through 64 years of age.

The most common local and systemic adverse reactions to Fluzone and Fluzone High-Dose vaccines include soreness, pain, and swelling at the vaccination site; fever, headache, malaise, and myalgia. The most common local and systemic adverse reactions to Fluzone Intradermal vaccine include erythema, induration, swelling, pain, and pruritus at the vaccination site; headache, myalgia, and malaise. Other adverse reactions may oc
