This is a Vanderbilt University Medical Center annual event providing flu vaccination to faculty and staff at no charge.
Flulapalooza® X will be held on Wednesday, September 28, from 6 am to 6 pm in the tent behind Light Hall.
The following flu vaccines will be offered at Flulapalooza®
|Regular Quadrivalent Inactivated Vaccine (QIV)1||Anyone over 6 months old who is not allergic to eggs|
|Egg-free vaccine2||People with life-threatening egg allergy|
|High dose3 vaccine (Quadrivalent inactivated)||People age 65 and older|
1Most of our QIV is latex-free and thimerosal-free.
2The egg-free vaccine is a quadrivalent influenza vaccine that is FDA approved for people ages 2 and up. It does not use chicken eggs in its manufacturing process so it is safe for people with a life-threatening egg allergy.
3High dose vaccine contains four times the standard adult dose, and is more effective in people age 65 and older. This form of vaccine causes more arm soreness and other side effects than the standard dose. Faculty/staff age 65 and older may choose to take either standard or high dose vaccine.
