The inactivated influenza vaccine is made of killed influenza viruses. It protects against viruses that cause influenza, often called the flu. The vaccine does not protect against other viruses or bacteria that cause colds or stomach flu. Several different influenza vaccines are available in B.C, including a live attenuated influenza vaccine made from weakened influenza viruses. All of the vaccines are approved by Health Canada and available at Carmi Remedy’s Rx – Your Penticton Pharmacy.
