The 2010-2011 Influenzinum blend as per usual is prepared from the seasonal flu vaccine. This does not mean that is should be considered a “homoeopathic vaccine,” which is an inappropriate and completely inaccurate term.
The 2010-2011 blend will be composed of:
A/Brisbane/59/2007 H1N1 (same as in 2008-2009) — WARNING: This is not the same type of A(H1N1) as the pandemic strain.
A/Brisbane/10/2007 H3N2 (same as in 2008-2009)
B/Brisbane/60/2008 (new since 2008-2009)
The Influenzinum blend (homeopathic preparation) is currently available to coincide with the season flu vaccine from which it is prepared and is a safer option for all ages of patients.
We currently will not be marketing a dilution of the pandemic vaccine for regulatory considerations that make it impossible to register such a strain. The announced release date for the pandemic influenza vaccine is mid-October.
Since Influenzinum is not a vaccine but a Homeopathic dilution prepared from the yearly flu vaccine, Influenzinum is not concerned by the warning. If you have any further questions or would like to order the 2010-2011 Influenzinum/Thymuline blend please contact the clinic directly at 780.459.5996
