Influvac only for clients 18+

October 27, 2009

It has come to ACP's attention that the seasonal influenza vaccine in stock at most community pharmacies is Influvac. Please note: 

INFLUVAC IS ONLY APPROVED FOR USE IN CLIENTS 18 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER.

Refer clients under the age of 18 years to a Public Health clinic.

Also remember your ethical obligation to inform clients, before they pay for Influvac, of their option of getting seasonal influenza immunization at no charge at a public health clinic.
