2.2 Administration

Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and/or discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. If any of these defects or conditions exist, Fluzone Quadrivalent should not be administered.

Before administering a dose of vaccine, shake the prefilled syringe or vial. Withdraw one dose of vaccine from the single-dose vial using a sterile needle and syringe. Use a separate sterile needle and syringe for each dose withdrawn from the multi-dose vial.

The preferred sites for intramuscular injection are the anterolateral aspect of the thigh in infants 6 months through 11 months of age, the anterolateral aspect of the thigh (or the deltoid muscle if muscle mass is adequate) in persons 12 months through 35 months of age, or the deltoid muscle in persons ≥36 months of age. The vaccine should not be injected into the gluteal area or areas where there may be a major nerve trunk.

Do not administer this product intravenously, intradermally, or subcutaneously.

Fluzone Quadrivalent should not be combined through reconstitution or mixed with any other vaccine.

3 DOSAGE FORMS AND STRENGTHS

Fluzone Quadrivalent is a suspension for injection.

Fluzone Quadrivalent is supplied in 4 presentations:

1) Prefilled single-dose syringe (pink syringe plunger rod), 0.25 mL, for persons 6 months through 35 months of age.

2) Prefilled single-dose syringe (clear syringe plunger rod), 0.5 mL, for persons 6 months of age and older.

3) Single-dose vial, 0.5 mL, for persons 6 months of age and older.

4) Multi-dose vial, 5 mL, for persons 6 months of age and older.

4 CONTRAINDICATIONS

Do not administer Fluzone Quadrivalent to anyone with a history of a severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of the vaccine [see Description (11)], including egg protein, or to a previous dose of any influenza vaccine.

5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

5.1 Guillain-Barré Syndrome

The 1976 swine influenza vaccine was associated with an elevated risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Evidence for a causal relation of GBS with other influenza vaccines is inconclusive; if an excess risk exists, it is probably slightly more than 1 additional case per 1 million persons vaccinated. (See ref. 1) If GBS has occurred within 6 weeks following previous influenza vaccination, the decision to give Fluzone Quadrivalent should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks.

5.2 Preventing and Managing Allergic Reactions

Appropriate medical treatment and supervision must be available to manage possible anaphylactic reactions following administration of Fluzone Quadrivalent.

5.3 Altered Immunocompetence

If Fluzone Quadrivalent is administered to immunocompromised persons, including those receiving immunosuppressive therapy, the expected immune response may not be obtained.

5.4 Limitations of Vaccine Effectiveness

Vaccination with Fluzone Quadrivalent may not protect all recipients.

6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse event rates observed in the clinical trial(s) of a vaccine cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trial(s) of another vaccine and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

Children 6 Months Through 8 Years of Age

Study 1 (NCT01240746, see http://clinicaltrials.gov) was a single-blind, randomized, active-controlled multi-center safety and immunogenicity study conducted in the US. In this study, children 6 months through 35 months of age received one or two 0.25 mL doses of either Fluzone Quadrivalent or one of two formulations of a comparator trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV-1 or TIV-2), and children 3 years through 8 years of age received one or two 0.5 mL doses of either Fluzone Quadrivalent, TIV-1, or TIV-2. Each of the trivalent formulations contained an influenza type B virus that corresponded to one of the two type B viruses in Fluzone Quadrivalent (a type B virus of the Victoria lineage or a type B virus of the Yamagata lineage). For participants who received two doses, the doses were administered approximately 4 weeks apart. The safety analysis set included 1841 children 6 months through 35 months of age and 2506 children 3 years through 8 years of age. Among participants 6 months through 8 years of age in the three vaccine groups combined, 49.3% were female (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 49.2%; TIV-1, 49.8%; TIV-2, 49.4%), 58.4% Caucasian (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 58.4%; TIV-1, 58.9%; TIV-2, 57.8%), 20.2% Black (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 20.5%; TIV-1, 19.9%; TIV-2, 19.1%), 14.1% Hispanic (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 14.3%; TIV-1, 13.2%; TIV-2, 14.7%), and 7.3% were of other racial/ethnic groups (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 6.8%; TIV-1, 8.0%; TIV-2, 8.5%). Table 2 and Table 3 summarize solicited injection-site and systemic adverse reactions reported within 7 days post-vaccination via diary cards. Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events for 28 days after each dose and serious adverse events (SAEs) during the 6 months following the last dose.

Among children 6 months through 8 years of age, unsolicited non-serious adverse events were reported in 1360 (47.0%) recipients in the Fluzone Quadrivalent group, 352 (48.0%) recipients in the TIV-1 group, and 346 (48.0%) recipients in the TIV-2 group. The most commonly reported unsolicited non-serious adverse events were cough, vomiting, and pyrexia. During the 28 days following vaccination, a total of 16 (0.6%) recipients in the Fluzone Quadrivalent group, 4 (0.5%) recipients in the TIV-1 group, and 4 (0.6%) recipients in the TIV-2 group, experienced at least one SAE. Throughout the study period, a total of 41 (1.4%) recipients in the Fluzone Quadrivalent group, 7 (1.0%) recipients in the TIV-1 group, and 14 (1.9%) recipients in the TIV-2 group, experienced at least one SAE. Three SAEs were considered to be possibly related to vaccination: croup in a Fluzone Quadrivalent recipient and 2 episodes of febrile seizure, 1 each in a TIV-1 recipient and a TIV-2 recipient.

0.5-mL Dose of Fluzone Quadrivalent in Children 6 Months through 35 Months of Age

Study 2 (NCT02915302 see http://clinicaltrials.gov) was a randomized, observer-blinded, 2-arm, multi-center safety and immunogenicity study conducted in the US. In this study, 1950 children 6 months through 35 months of age were randomly assigned to receive Fluzone Quadrivalent administered in either a volume of 0.25 mL (Group 1) or 0.5 mL (Group 2). For participants recommended to receive two doses of influenza vaccine as per Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices guidance, the same dose was administered 4 weeks after the first. The safety analysis set included 1941 participants who received at least 1 dose of study vaccine. Of these participants, 49.7% were female, 74.3% were Caucasian, 19.2% were Black, 6.5% were of other racial groups, and 22.0% were Hispanic/Latino.

Table 4 summarizes solicited injection-site and systemic adverse reactions reported within 7 days post-vaccination via diary cards for the 0.25 mL and 0.5 mL volumes of Fluzone Quadrivalent in children 6 months through 35 months of age.

Participants were monitored for unsolicited adverse events and SAEs during the 28 days following vaccination. Unsolicited non-serious adverse events were reported in 417 (44%) participants in Group 1 and 394 (40%) participants in Group 2. The most commonly reported unsolicited non-serious adverse events in both groups were cough and rhinorrhea. Ten SAEs were reported during the 28-day follow-up period: 5 (0.5%) in Group 1 and 5 (0.5%) in Group 2.

Adults

In Study 3 (NCT00988143, see http://clinicaltrials.gov), a multi-centered randomized, open-label trial conducted in the US, adults 18 years of age and older received one dose of either Fluzone Quadrivalent or one of two formulations of comparator trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV-1 or TIV-2). Each of the trivalent formulations contained an influenza type B virus that corresponded to one of the two type B viruses in Fluzone Quadrivalent (a type B virus of the Victoria lineage or a type B virus of the Yamagata lineage). The safety analysis set included 570 recipients, half aged 18-60 years and half aged 61 years or older. Among participants in the three vaccine groups combined, 67.2% were female (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 68.4%; TIV-1, 67.9%; TIV-2, 65.3%), 88.4% Caucasian (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 91.1%; TIV-1, 86.8%; TIV-2, 87.4%), 9.6% Black (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 6.8%; TIV-1, 12.1%; TIV-2, 10.0%), 0.4% Hispanic (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 0.0%; TIV-1, 0.5%; TIV-2, 0.5%), and 1.7% were of other racial/ethnic groups (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 2.1%; TIV-1, 0.5%; TIV-2, 2.2%).

Geriatric Adults

In Study 4 (NCT01218646, see http://clinicaltrials.gov), a multi-center, randomized, double-blind trial conducted in the US, adults 65 years of age and older received one dose of either Fluzone Quadrivalent, or one of two formulations of comparator trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV-1 or TIV-2). Each of the trivalent formulations contained an influenza type B virus that corresponded to one of the two type B viruses in Fluzone Quadrivalent (a type B virus of the Victoria lineage or a type B virus of the Yamagata lineage). The safety analysis set included 675 recipients. Among participants in the three vaccine groups combined, 55.7% were female (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 57.3%; TIV-1, 56.0%; TIV-2, 53.8%), 89.5% Caucasian (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 87.6%; TIV-1, 89.8%; TIV-2, 91.1%), 2.2% Black (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 4.0%; TIV-1, 1.8%; TIV-2, 0.9%), 7.4% Hispanic (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 8.4%; TIV-1, 7.6%; TIV-2, 6.2%) and 0.9% were of other racial/ethnic groups (Fluzone Quadrivalent, 0.0%; TIV-1, 0.9%; TIV-2, 1.8%).
