Fluzone High Dose
Drug Names(s): Fluzone HD, High-Dose Influenza Vaccine (SNY)
Description: This is a high-dose version of Fluzone. It is designed to provide a higher immune response in elderly patients, as the elderly mount a lower antibody response to vaccination than young adults. Fluzone High Dose is a non-adjuvanted split virion vaccine prepared in virally infected chicken eggs. It contains antigens from two influenza strains (one each from the H1N1 and H2N3 groups) and from one influenza B strain. These vary annually as determined by the USPHS.
