Flu ShotThe Influenza (flu) virus is a highly contagious viral infection that affects a majority of people around the world in the winter months, leading to respiratory illnesses, such as pneumonia and bronchitis. Flu vaccines have been developed to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. Also, the more people who are vaccinated, the less likely the flu can spread through that community. Trivalent flu vaccines (traditional flu vaccines) protect against three flu viruses, while the Quadrivalent version protects against the same three flu viruses, plus an additional B virus. The addition of this extra B virus allows for broader protection against circulating flu viruses. Since the quadrivalent flu shot has only been recently introduced into the market, there are questions being posed about its safety profile. The answer is YES IT IS SAFE because studies have shown that vaccines made to protect against four flu viruses have a safety profile similar to seasonal flu vaccines made to protect against three viruses. In essence, the quadrivalent flu shot is safe and it provides broader coverage against the flu viruses as compared to the trivalent version. I hope this has helped
