Why do patients need cell-based flu shots?
Patients will likely need a cell-based flu shot because they either need a hypoallergenic vaccine or they need a more effective shot.
According to the CDC, cell-based flu shots are highly effective in preventing the flu because the current influenza strain can adapt to egg-based vaccines. Usually, eggs are a main ingredient in the flu vaccine to help manufacture a greater batch.
However, some patients may need a stronger vaccine, or one that doesn’t have egg-based ingredients, due to autoimmune deficiencies. Egg allergies and other conditions may require a patient to find a vaccine option that doesn’t cause an adverse reaction.
