Flucelvax Quad How to Take

Flucelvax Quad (Influenza-vaccine) belongs to a group of medications known as vaccines. It is used to prevent Influenza (the flu). Influenza is a common viral illness caused by 2 types of virus: influenza A and influenza B.

Each year, different strains (new, slightly different versions of the virus) appear. Scientists predict which strains will be most likely for the coming year, and then these strains are used to make up the year's influenza vaccine. Each year's influenza vaccine contains 3 to 4 virus strains that are likely to circulate in Canada in the coming winter. The vaccine only provides protection against the strains of flu virus used to prepare the vaccine.

It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks for the protection against these viruses to be effective, and the protection lasts for 6 to 12 months. Annual vaccination is necessary to make sure you are covered for the new virus strains that are expected each year.

The vaccine increases a person's defenses against the influenza virus. It works by introducing very small amounts of viral components (parts) into the body. These components are enough to stimulate the production of antibodies (cells designed to attack that particular virus), which will remain in the body ready to attack that same virus in the future. The vaccine is used to prevent influenza for people over 6 months of age who want to reduce their chances of getting the flu.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends annual vaccination for:

  • any healthy person wanting protection from influenza
  • Indigenous peoples
  • children aged 6 months to 18 years who are being treated with acetylsalicylic acid (Asa) for long periods of time
  • health care workers
  • healthy children aged 6 to 59 months
  • healthy pregnant women
  • household contacts (including children) of people at high risk who cannot be vaccinated or who may not respond to vaccination
  • people at high risk of complications of influenza that are travelling to areas where influenza is likely circulating
  • people over 65 years of age
  • people who have HIV
  • people with certain chronic health conditions, such as Asthma, heart disease, Diabetes, cancer, Cystic Fibrosis, Anemia, Obesity, or Kidney Disease
  • residents of nursing homes or chronic care facilities
  • people who provide regular care to children ages 0 to 59 months
  • people who provide essential community services
  • people who provide services within relatively closed settings to persons at high risk (e.g., crew on a ship)
  • people in direct contact with poultry infected with Avian Influenza, during culling operations

Your doctor may have suggested this vaccine for conditions other than the ones listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are receiving this vaccine, speak to your doctor.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Flucelvax Quad (Influenza-vaccine). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking.

Flucelvax Quad Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Flucelvax Quad (Influenza-vaccine).

Allergic reactions: In rare instances, this vaccine may cause severe allergic reactions. This is why your doctor may ask you to stay in the office for about 30 minutes after having the vaccine so that you can get medical care if you experience an allergic reaction. If you notice signs of a severe allergic reaction (hives; trouble breathing or swallowing; or swelling of the lips, face, throat, or tongue), get medical attention immediately.

Allergy to eggs: People who have an allergy to eggs that causes anaphylaxis (hives, swelling of the mouth and throat, difficulty breathing) should discuss with their doctor the risks and benefits of receiving this vaccine and whether any special monitoring is needed. Bleeding: If you have a bleeding disorder or if you take anticoagulants (blood thinners), talk to your doctor about how this vaccine may affect your medical condition and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS): Guillain-Barre syndrome, a neurological disorder, has been rarely reported after this vaccine is given. If you experience any weakness or tingling in the legs, arms, or upper body, contact your doctor. Most people recover fully from GBS.

Immune system: As with any vaccine, influenza vaccine may not be as effective for those who have a weakened immune system (e.g., people on chemotherapy, people who have had an organ transplant, or people with HIV).

Vaccine protection: As with any vaccine, this vaccine may not protect 100% of people who receive it. The vaccine only provides protection against certain strains of the flu virus – the ones from which it was prepared (or ones that are closely related).

Pregnancy: If you are or may become pregnant while receiving Flucelvax Quad (Influenza-vaccine), talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of using this vaccine. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization recommends influenza vaccination for healthy pregnant women.
