The vaccine increases a person’s defenses against the influenza virus. It works by introducing very small amounts of viral components (parts) into the body. These components are enough to stimulate the production of antibodies (cells designed to attack that particular virus), which will remain in the body ready to attack that same virus in the future.

Description

The vaccine increases a person’s defenses against the influenza virus. It works by introducing very small amounts of viral components (parts) into the body. These components are enough to stimulate the production of antibodies (cells designed to attack that particular virus), which will remain in the body ready to attack that same virus in the future. The vaccine is used to prevent influenza for people over 6 months of age who want to reduce their chances of getting the flu.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommends annual vaccination for:

  • any healthy person wanting protection from influenza
  • Indigenous peoples
  • children aged 6 months to 18 years who are being treated with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) for long periods of time
  • health care workers
  • healthy children aged 6 to 59 months
  • healthy pregnant women
  • household contacts (including children) of people at high risk who cannot be vaccinated or who may not respond to vaccination
  • people at high risk of complications of influenza that are travelling to areas where influenza is likely circulating
  • people over 65 years of age
  • people who have HIV
  • people with certain chronic health conditions, such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, cystic fibrosis, anemia, obesity, or kidney disease
  • residents of nursing homes or chronic care facilities
  • people who provide regular care to children ages 0 to 59 months
  • people who provide essential community services
  • people who provide services within relatively closed settings to persons at high risk (e.g., crew on a ship)
  • people in direct contact with poultry infected with avian influenza, during culling operations

Your doctor may have suggested this vaccine for conditions other than the ones listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are receiving this vaccine, speak to your doctor.
