This year there are more types of flu vaccine being manufactured, including high dose (recommended for those over age 65), intradermal (also known as micro-needle), standard shots and nasal spray (mist). Some of the vaccines will be “trivalent” which means it contains three strains of inactivated flu virus, and others will be the new “quadrivalent” which means it contains four strains of the flu virus. The CDC does not recommend one type of flu vaccine over the other. The important thing is that everyone (except babies younger than 6 months old) should get a flu vaccine every year.
