Important Safety Information
What is FLUAD?
FLUAD is a vaccine that helps protect against the flu. FLUAD is for
people aged 65 years and older. Vaccination with FLUAD may not
protect all people who receive the vaccine.
Who should not get FLUAD?
You should not get FLUAD if you have had a severe allergic reaction to
any of the ingredients in the vaccine in the past, including egg protein,
or a severe reaction to a previous influenza vaccine.
Who may not be able to get FLUAD?
Tell your health care provider if you:
• Have ever had Guillain-Barré syndrome (severe muscle weakness)
after getting a flu shot. The decision to give FLUAD should be made
by your health care provider, based on careful consideration of the
potential benefits and risks.
• Have an allergy to rubber latex. FLUAD does not contain latex, but the
tip caps of the prefilled syringes contain natural rubber latex, which
may cause an allergic reaction in persons sensitive to latex.
What if I have a weakened immune system?
Tell your health care provider if you have problems with your immune
system, as your immune response to the vaccine may be reduced.
