What is New for 2022 - 2023 Flu Vaccines?

What You Need to Know About the Flu Vaccine

A seasonal vaccine is distributed routinely every year. The composition of the flu vaccine is updated annually, usually containing a combination of strains of Influenza A and Influenza B virus components, as recommended by FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC). While there are many different flu viruses, this year the majority of flu vaccines protects against the four viruses that research suggests will be most common.
