The Balancing Act


Flu Facts and Prevention

Did you know that you can spread the flu without knowing it?

The holiday season is here…and so is the flu season. Did you know that you can spread the flu without knowing it?

Approximately 20% of otherwise healthy adults carry the flu virus during the flu season and can infect vulnerable populations such as the elderly, pregnant women and very young children.

How do you protect yourself? Getting vaccinated reduces the chance of being a flu spreader! And the Flublok® Influenza Vaccine brought to you by Protein Sciences, provides a pure alternative that eliminates the factors that make people reluctant to take the vaccine.

What makes it different from traditional influenza vaccines? In fact, the FDA has called it revolutionary!

  • Flublok is a new, pure, safe and effective PROTEIN-based influenza vaccine containing 3x the protective ingredient
  • Flublok is FDA approved for adults 18-49 years of age and we expect approval for those 50 years and over in early 2014
  • Flublok is – unlike traditional vaccines – not made in eggs and does not contain egg proteins, antibiotics, influenza virus, harsh chemicals, latex, gelatin, or preservatives

The CDC recommends that all pregnant women get vaccinated for influenza. A pregnancy registry is available for Flublok.

Make sure to tune in to The Balancing Act on December 9th and 16th at 7:00 am (ET/PT) as Manon Cox, President and CEO of Protein Sciences Corp. talks about all things relating to the flu and introduces their innovative influenza vaccine, Flublok. And someone will be getting a flu shot right on set!
