Flu Vaccine

Influenza or flu is a respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus. Millions of people get flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and ten of thousands of people die from flu. Common symptoms of flu are fever, head and body ache, sore throat and runny nose.

The influenza vaccine is designed to protect against the influenza viruses. Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body after vaccination and these antibodies provide protection against infection with circulating influenza viruses.

The flu vaccine may contain egg protein and certain antibiotics (eg, gentamycin, kanamycin or neomycin) and is not suitable for persons allergic to them.
