FLUVAX CSL TBA BX 10

Fluvax (Influenza virus vaccine) is indicated for immunisation against influenza in persons aged 5 years and over. 
It must NOT be used in children under 5 years. Use in children aged 5 to under 9 years should be based on a careful consideration of potential risks and benefits in the individual.

This is a purified, inactivated, split virion (split virus) vaccine each 0.5 mL of which contains antigens representative of the following types: A/California/7/2009 (NYMC X-181) (A/California/7/2009 (H1N1) – like) 15 μg haemagglutinin per dose A/Texas/50/2012 (NYMC X-223) (A/Texas/50/2012 (H3N2) – like) 15 μg haemagglutinin per dose
B/Massachusetts/2/2012 (NYMC BX-51B) (B/Massachusetts/2/2012 – like) 15 μg haemagglutinin per dose

Each 0.5 mL dose also contains, nominally: sodium chloride 4.1 mg, sodium phosphate - dibasic anhydrous 0.3 mg, sodium phosphate – monobasic 0.08 mg, potassium chloride 0.02 mg, potassium phosphate – monobasic 0.02 mg and calcium chloride 1.5 μg. The following are present in each 0.5 mL dose: sodium taurodeoxycholate ≤ 5 μg, ovalbumin <1 μg, sucrose < 10 μg, neomycin ≤ 3 ng, polymyxin B sulfate ≤ 0.5 ng and β-propiolactone ≤ 0.4 ng.

The type and amount of viral antigens in Fluvax vaccine conform to the requirements of the Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee and the New Zealand Ministry of Health for the winter of 2014. The strains chosen for vaccine manufacture are endorsed by the Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee as being antigenically equivalent to the reference virus.

The vaccine is prepared from virus grown in the allantoic cavity of embryonated eggs, purified by zonal centrifugation, inactivated by β-propiolactone and disrupted by sodium taurodeoxycholate. Fluvax vaccine conforms in safety and sterility to the requirements of the British Pharmacopoeia.

Fluvax vaccine is a clear to slightly opaque liquid with some sediment that resuspends upon shaking.
