Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing the spread of respiratory illnesses, like flu, this fall and winter is more important than ever. CDC has worked with vaccine manufacturers to have extra flu vaccine available this flu season. Manufacturers have already begun distributing flu vaccine and Mesa West Medical has FLUBLOK QUADRIVALENT Flu Vaccine in stock. CDC recommends getting a flu vaccination in September or October but getting vaccinated anytime during the flu season can help protect you. We are now giving vaccinations without appointments. If worried about coming into our office, we will give the flu vaccine curbside.

Why we chose Flublock this year:

According to a head-to-head randomized controlled trial, FLUBLOK QUADRIVALENT was proven to provide 43 % better protection versus a standard-dose quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine

FLUBLOK QUADRIVALENT IS AN INFLUENZA VACCINE WITH A UNIQUE COMPOSITION
  • 3X more hemagglutinin antigen versus a standard-dose quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine
  • Similar safety profile compared to a standard-dose inactivated influenza vaccine
  • Made with RECOMBINANT DNA TECHNOLOGY:
    • Eliminates the need to grow influenza virus during manufacturing, which ensures hemagglutinin antigen cannot adapt or mutate
    • Avoids changes in hemagglutinin antigen structure that can lead to reduced vaccine effectiveness
