Familiarize Yourself With the New Flucelvax Quad Flu Vaccine
Flucelvax Quad will be the latest injectable flu vaccine to join the fight in the 2020-2021 influenza season.
It's a "quadrivalent" flu vaccine...so it protects against the same four flu strains as other inactivated quadrivalent flu vaccines, such as Afluria Tetra and Fluzone Quadrivalent.
But Flucelvax Quad is the first "cell culture-based" flu vaccine in Canada. This means the flu viruses are grown in mammalian cells...rather than the usual egg-based cultures.
