We're always out and about


Most people today lead very busy lives. Whether it’s going to school or work,
taking care of a family, or staying active outdoors and in the community,
there’s no time in a packed schedule to be sick. And really, who wants to be
sick anyway? Afluria is a flu shot that helps protect people from three common
types of flu viruses: Type A (H1N1), Type A (H3N2), and Type B.1

Ask your doctor or pharmacist if Afluria is right for you1

Healthcare professionals have trusted Afluria to protect people from the
flu since Afluria was introduced in 2007.1 Alfuria is made by Seqirus, a company
committed to preventing and treating influenza. Afluria is available in a
preservative-free form; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Who can get Afluria?

Most people 5 years of age and older can get Afluria.1,2,*

If you are allergic to eggs and egg protein or any ingredients in
a flu vaccine, or if you’ve had an allergic reaction to a flu shot in the
past, you should talk to your doctor before getting any flu shot,
including Afluria. If you are unsure, your doctor or pharmacist can
help you decide if Afluria is right for you.1

*The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that Afluria not be used in children 6 months through 8 years of age because of this age group’s increased risk of febrile reactions with CSL’s 2010 Southern Hemisphere flu vaccine.

Where can I get Afluria?

Afluria is available at many local doctors’ offices, pharmacies,
and flu shot clinics, but call ahead to be sure they offer Afluria.

Needle-Free option

Afluria is the only flu vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be given without a needle, using the PharmaJet® Stratis® Needle‐Free Injector.1

PharmaJet Stratis Needle-Free Injector The device uses a stream
of fluid that goes through
your skin in about a tenth
of a second. This method is
proven to provide the same
degree of flu protection as
a shot that is given with
a needle.3

Anyone 18 through 64 years of age who can get Afluria
may ask for needle-free Afluria.1

Check with your doctor’s office or call your local pharmacy
to be sure they carry the PharmaJet Stratis Needle‐Free
Injector for use only with Afluria. Don’t let a fear of needles
keep you from getting your flu shot this year.
