Note.
  1. During production of the drug phosphate buffered saline (PBS) is used as a solvent and pH stabilizer: for formulation without preservative - PBS #1, for formulation with preservative - PBS #2. Composition of PBS #1: 9 g of sodium chloride, 1.5 g of sodium hydrogen phosphate, 0,12-0,14 g of potassium dihydrogen, water for injection up to 1 liter. Composition of PBS #2: 9 g of sodium chloride, 1.5 g of sodium hydrogen phosphate, 0,12-0,14 g of potassium dihydrogen, 0.85 ml of 1% thiomersal (merthiolate) solution, water for injection up to 1 liter.
  2. Polyoxidonium is a mixture of the active substance polyoxidonium (azoximer bromide) and excipients: mannitol, povidone and beta-carotene aqueous solution, resulting from the continuous technological cycle.

Indications

For specific prevention of influenza the vaccine without preservation is used for children from the age of 6 months old, adolescents and adults without age limitation; the vaccine with preservation is used for adults from the age of 18 years old.
