Sanofi: Influenza in the Senior Population- Prevention


Indication

Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is indicated for active immunization for the prevention of influenza disease caused by influenza A subtype viruses and type B virus contained in the vaccine.

Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is approved for use in persons 65 years of age and older. We are pleased to invite you to take part in an on-demand webcast  on influenza immunization titledInfluenza in the Senior Population: Sharing the Latest Evidence on Disease Prevention.

This non-CME webcast program, focusing on the impact of influenza disease in seniors, will feature a presentation by Marvin J. Bittner, MD, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, Medical Microbiology, and Immunology at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Bittner will share key data from a clinical trial in which Fluzone ®  High-Dose (Influenza Vaccine) was significantly more effective than Fluzone vaccine in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza in people 65 years of age and older.

Influenza in the Senior Population: Sharing the Latest Evidence on Disease Prevention  is now available on demand through May 2016.

CASA Physicians Alliance - A Group Purchasing Organization for Physicians, was started 16 years ago for the sole purpose of joining physicians into a large buying group to obtain the best possible discounts on pediatric, adolescent and adult vaccines.
