FLUCELVAX QUADRIVALENT® (Influenza Vaccine) is the first and only cell culture-based flu vaccine in the United States to help offer protection against 4 flu virus strains for people aged 4 years and older.1,2

It’s the evolution of FLUCELVAX, a flu shot made by cell culture technology that helps protect against 3 strains of the flu.3

FLUCELVAX was the first FDA-approved flu vaccine to use cells, instead of chicken eggs, and represented the first major advance in flu vaccine manufacturing technology since flu vaccine production began in the 1930s.3,5 FLUCELVAX QUADRIVALENT is made the same way.1
