Extra Strength Flu Vaccine Efluelda® for the over 65's
What Is the High Dose Flu Vaccine?
The high dose flu vaccine is a vaccine that is designed specifically for adults over the age of 65. It contains four times the amount of antigen as the standard flu vaccine, which can help to produce a stronger immune response in older adults. As we age, our immune systems become weaker, making it harder to fight off infections like the flu. The high dose vaccine can help to protect older adults from the flu and its complications.
Why Choose the High Dose Flu Vaccine?
In a clinical trial, the high dose vaccine was found to be 24.2% more effective in preventing the flu in adults over 65 than the standard flu vaccine. Additionally, older adults are more likely to experience severe complications from the flu, such as pneumonia, hospitalisation, and even death. By getting vaccinated with the high dose flu vaccine Efluelda®, older adults can reduce their risk of these serious complications.
How Is the High Dose Flu Vaccine Administered?
The high dose flu vaccine is administered in the same way as the standard flu vaccine, via injection. It is important to receive the high dose vaccine from a qualified healthcare professional, such as those at CM Mediclinic.
