What is FluMist Quadrivalent?

FluMist® Quadrivalent is a way to protect you and your family (2- to 59-year-olds) against the flu. It's different from the regular flu shot because it's a needle-free way to prevent the flu. That means getting protected from the flu is now as easy as having a fine mist sprayed into your nose.

Quadrivalent vs. Trivalent:

Flu viruses change from year to year. That's why the WHO makes annual updates on which strains of flu should be included in the flu vaccine. The vaccine comes in trivalent and quadrivalent formulations, and the WHO makes recommendations for both. Trivalent vaccines protect against three strains of flu - two A and one B strain. Quadrivalent vaccines protect against four strains of flu - two A and two B strains. That means, each season, vaccines like FluMist® Quadrivalent protect against the same flu strains as trivalent vaccines but also cover an additional B strain.

FluMist® Quadrivalent is a fine mist that gets sprayed into your nose and protects you from four strains of flu.
