The FDA has approved a total of of six flu vaccines thus far for next season, with each being far different from last year’s vaccines.

An FDA advisory panel recommended last year that the flu vaccine be changed before the start of this season.

This came out after it was revealed that the flu vaccine did not protect against the main flu strain types.

Typically, from year to year 1 or 2 of the strains in the flu vaccine changes. This year, all 3 strains were changed.

The six approved flu vaccines include Aflruia, Fluarix, FluLaval, FluMist, Fluvirin, and Fluzone.
