Dosage and Schedule
Administer FLUAD QUADRIVALENT as a single 0.5 mL intramuscular injection in adults 65 years of age and older.
- Gently shake each syringe. FLUAD QUADRIVALENT has a milky-white appearance. Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration whenever solution and container permit [see Description (11)]. If either condition exists, FLUAD QUADRIVALENT should not be administered.
- To use a pre-filled syringe fitted with a Luer Lok system, remove the tip cap by unscrewing it in a counter-clockwise direction. Once the tip cap is removed, attach a needle to the syringe by screwing it on in a clockwise direction until it locks. Once the needle is locked in place, remove the needle protector and administer the vaccine.
- The vaccine should be administered by intramuscular injection, preferably in the region of the deltoid muscle of the upper arm. Do not inject the vaccine in the gluteal region or areas where there may be a major nerve trunk.
