FLUAD® is a flu shot designed for adults 65 and older.

FLUAD® (influenza vaccine, adjuvanted) is the first FDA-approved seasonal flu shot that contains an immune-enhancing ingredient.1

FLUAD helps protect against the same flu strains as other seasonal flu shots, but it has something they don’t have: an immune-enhancing ingredient that can help provide a strong immune response to the flu in adults 65 and older.1,2

What is this immune-enhancing ingredient?

The immune-enhancing ingredient in FLUAD is an oil derived from squalene. Squalene is a naturally occurring substance found in humans, animals, and plants.1

Squalene is also found in3:
  • Foods
  • Health supplements
  • Cosmetics
  • Over-the-counter medications
Squalene is made by the liver and normally circulates in the human body.3

How is FLUAD different?

An aging immune system may cause adults aged 65 and older to have a lower immune response to traditional flu vaccines compared to younger adults. The immune-enhancing ingredient in FLUAD is proven to provide a strong immune response to help the immune systems of adults 65 and older recognize and respond to the flu.1,4
