CPT 90662 - Fluzone High-Dose (Influenza Virus Vaccine) Facts at a Glance
About Fluzone High-Dose Vaccine
Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is indicated for people 65 years of age and older.
Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is an inactivated influenza virus vaccine indicated for active immunization against influenza disease caused by influenza virus subtypes A and type B contained in the vaccine.
o This indication is based on the immune response elicited by Fluzone High-Dose; there have been no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose.
Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is designed with four times the antigen content to meet the specific needs of people 65 years of age and older to generate a more robust immune response in this population of adults whose immune systems are weaker compared with younger adults.
Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is produced in the same production facility as Fluzone (Influenza Virus Vaccine).
Fluzone High-Dose vaccine is supplied in a single-dose, no preservative, prefilled syringe.
About the Clinical Trials
The Phase III trial (FIM05) was a multi-center, randomized, active-controlled, double blind trial conducted in the U.S.
Included 3,876 adults 65 years of age and older and compared Fluzone High-Dose vaccine (n=2,575) to standard-dose Fluzone vaccine (n=1,262).
The objective of the trial was to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of high-dose vaccine compared with standard-dose vaccine.
o The primary endpoint of the study was the statistical superiority of immune responses to at least two of the strains contained in the vaccines when comparing Fluzone High-Dose vaccine to Fluzone vaccine.
o There are no data demonstrating clinically relevant prevention of culture confirmed influenza or its complications after vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose compared to standard Fluzone vaccine in individuals 65 years of age and older.
