The FDA has approved a new 4-1 flu vaccine, because apparently one bad idea at a time simply was not enough. Seqirus vaccine factory in Holly Springs, North Carolina has already achieved FDA approval (no surprises there) for Flucelvax Quadrivalent flu vaccine.
Flucelvax Quadrivalent is the first four strain super flu vaccine in history. According to wraltechwire, this is a game changer.
“Flucelvax Quadrivalent will provide healthcare providers and their patients with an important option to further broaden their influenza coverage,” Seqirus president Gordon Naylor said. “We are pleased to offer Flucelvax Quadrivalent, which is produced at our full-scale cell culture influenza vaccine manufacturing facility in North Carolina, to our valued customers during the 2016-2017 flu season.ADVERTISEMENT
I can’t begin to fathom the stunning lack of true testing that’s went on with this formula. With doses seemingly four times as powerful, it is difficult to see a lot of good coming out of this. Flu shots commonly fail on an annual basis, however, it is clear from this announcement that competition in the market continues to grow at outrageous levels. In the end, it really is a money grab. And people continue to fall for it year after year.
In this case, who knows how much worse the resulting injuries might end up being?
