About this year’s vaccine
The 2022–23 flu vaccine offered at MIT Medical’s flu clinic is quadrivalent, protecting against two strains of influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) and two strains of influenza B.
Active flu strains are different each year, so even if you got a flu vaccine last year, you need to get this year’s vaccine. More information about this year’s vaccine is available from the CDC (Vaccine Information Statement) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (Massachusetts Immunization Information System).
