About Us

FLUCELVAX QUADRIVALENT is made using cell culture technology, which does not rely on eggs for manufacturing and has the potential to rapidly increase production of flu shots in times of need. It is also antibiotic, preservative, and latex free, and it helps protect against 4 strains of the flu in people aged 4 years and older.

FLUCELVAX QUADRIVALENT (Influenza Vaccine) was developed with a new approach to influenza vaccine manufacturing, using cell culture production technology which uses cells rather than eggs in the creation process. This production methodology was the first major development in influenza vaccine manufacturing since vaccine production began in the 1930's.
