FDA approves new flu vaccine

The Food and Drug Administration recently approved a new flu immunization developed by Cambridge, Mass.-based Seqirus.

Afluria Quadrivalent is an inactivated influenza vaccine intended to protect patients against four different flu viruses — two Type A viruses and two Type B viruses. The vaccine comes in a single-dose pre-filled syringe.

In May, Seqirus received FDA approval for another quadrivalent flu vaccine called Flucelvax.

Afluria Quadrivalent will be available in the U.S. for this year's flu season.
