Traditional trivalent flu shots are available for people 6 months and older. These inactivated flu vaccines do not contain any live influenza viruses and are given by injection. Quadrivalent flu vaccines protect against four strains of influenza viruses. The quadrivalent vaccine now targets a fourth strain, which is a second type B strain, in addition to the other three strains. The pentavalent vaccine is a combination of five vaccines in one: diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenza type b (the bacteria that causes meningitis, pneumonia and otitis).

What is a trivalent flu vaccine?
Traditional flu vaccines offer protection against three different flu viruses that are expected to circulate throughout flu season. These strains include one type B and two type A strains. Trivalent flu vaccines are the traditional flu vaccines administered in prior flu seasons.
Traditional trivalent flu shots are available for people 6 months and older. These inactivated flu vaccines do not contain any live influenza viruses and are given by injection.
Many manufacturers are phasing out the traditional trivalent flu vaccine in favor of quadrivalent influenza vaccine, which protects against four strains of the virus. While there is no set timetable, it is possible trivalent flu shots will not be available within the coming years.

What is a quadrivalent flu vaccine?
Quadrivalent flu vaccines protect against four strains of influenza viruses. The quadrivalent vaccine now targets a fourth strain, which is a second type B strain, in addition to the other three strains.
Scientists classify and research the most common influenza strains that cause infection to decide which strains to use in the annual vaccine. The B strains tend to circulate to varying degrees every year; however, it is difficult to know which strain will cause the most illnesses in any given year. Therefore, the quadrivalent vaccine will cover both B stains as well as the both A strains, offering additional protection.
What is a pentavalent vaccine?
The pentavalent vaccine is a combination of five vaccines in one: diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenza type b (the bacteria that causes meningitis, pneumonia and otitis).
Side effects of Trivalent, Quadrivalent and Pentavalent Vaccines
Td vaccine can protect adolescents and adults from tetanus and diphtheria. Td is usually given as a booster dose every 10 years but it can also be given earlier after a severe and dirty wound or burn. Another vaccine, called Tdap, which protects against pertussis in addition to tetanus and diphtheria, is sometimes recommended instead of Td vaccine. Your doctor or the person giving you the vaccine can give you more information. Td may safely be given at the same time as other vaccines.
Influenza virus (commonly known as "the flu") is a serious disease caused by a virus. Influenza virus can spread from one person to another through small droplets of saliva that are expelled into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The virus can also be passed through contact with objects the infected person has touched, such as a door handle or other surfaces.
The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine is given as a single injection to prevent measles, mumps, and rubella. Measles, mumps, and rubella are serious diseases. Measles infection is caused by the measles virus. It causes rash, cough, runny nose, eye irritation, and fever. It can progress into a serious illness which may cause ear infection, pneumonia, seizures, brain damage, and even death. Mumps is caused by the mumps virus. It causes fever, headache, muscle pain, loss of appetite, and swollen glands. It can also progress into a serious illness which may cause deafness, infection of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis), painful swelling of the testicles or ovaries, and in rare cases sterility (inability of men to father children). Rubella is caused by the rubella virus. It causes rash, arthritis, and mild fever. Rubella is especially dangerous during pregnancy as it can cause a miscarriage or serious birth defects in the newborn baby.
This vaccine is given to provide protection (immunity) against tetanus (lockjaw) in adults and children 7 years or older. Vaccination is the best way to protect against this life-threatening disease. Vaccines work by causing the body to produce its own protection (antibodies). Tetanus vaccine is usually first given to infants with 2 other vaccines for diphtheria and whooping cough (pertussis) in a series of 3 injections. This vaccine is usually used as a "booster" vaccine after this first series. Closely follow the vaccination schedule provided by the health care professional. Booster injections may be needed at the time of injury in older children and adults if it has been 5-10 years since the last tetanus vaccine was received. Booster injections should also be given every 10 years even if no injury has occurred. This injection or an injection with tetanus/diphtheria or tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis may be used for the booster.
Oral Polio Vaccine is used for Polio and other conditions. Oral Polio Vaccine contains Live Attenuated Poliomyelitis Virus as an active ingredient. Oral Polio Vaccine works by providing immunity against polio. Oral Polio Vaccine is used for the treatment, control, prevention, & improvement of the following diseases, conditions and symptoms
Cholera vaccine is used in adults to help prevent cholera. Cholera is a serious disease that can cause death. It is caused by a germ called Vibrio cholerae, and is spread most often through infected food or water. If you are traveling to cholera-infected areas, avoid eating uncooked food, especially fish and shellfish, and peel fruit yourself. Avoid water that may be infected, carbonated bottled water and carbonated soft drinks are safe.
It is essential that anyone who has potentially been exposed to rabies virus or Australian bat lyssavirus (ABLV) be protected against these diseases through the appropriate use of rabies vaccine and human rabies immunoglobulin (HRIG). Potential exposure occurs when people are bitten or scratched by animals that may be infected, or when animals that may be infected lick a person’s broken skin or mucous membranes (eyes, nose or mouth).
