flu vaccine: may i ask was it just the... - British Lung Foun...
British Lung Foundation
It has 4 parts as such to make sure that people aged 65+ are well protected. Under 65 have 3 elements to their flu jab I believe. Xxxx
well thank you for getting back to me so then shall i take it they got my age wrong as am only 59 or are they giving people like us teh 4 parts
Could well be because of the lung issue benney that you are given the 4 part vaccine as well.
The Quad (4)vaccine is given to most adults under 65 .
Over 65s have the triple with a protein additive this year to boost the immune system.
The difference is the 65+ Vaccine has 4 parts and, the under 65 "3 parts"
"The enhanced vaccine has been specially formulated to create a greater immune response amongst the elderly, who are known to have a weaker response to immunisation."
I am sure we got difference vaccine last year, I know for sure I could not go with my wife, because her vaccine was different to mine, so it is not new as such, the new formula maybe.
Some further info.
like i say it was this year you book and then you walk in one door out the other one nurse calling out your name and telling teh other one which one to give you she told the nurse who was giving me mine she shouted No4 for this gent
and am no way near 65
