DRUG INTERACTIONS

Concurrent Use With Other Vaccines

There are no data to assess the concomitant administration of AFLURIA with other vaccines. If AFLURIA is to be given at the same time as another injectable vaccine(s), the vaccine(s) should be administered at different injection sites.

AFLURIA should not be mixed with any other vaccine in the same syringe or vial.

Concurrent Use With Immunosuppressive Therapies

The immunological response to AFLURIA may be diminished in individuals receiving corticosteroid or immunosuppressive therapies.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

AFLURIA is contraindicated in individuals with known hypersensitivity to eggs, neomycin, or polymyxin, or in anyone who has had a life-threatening reaction to previous influenza vaccination (see Description [11]).
