This approval also included labeling for CSL Biotherapies’ Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine which is an inactivated influenza virus vaccine now indicated for active immunization of persons ages 6 months and older against influenza disease caused by pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus. This indication is based on the immune response elicited by the seasonal trivalent Influenza Virus Vaccines manufactured by CSL (Afluria®).
