Populations to be vaccinated. Vaccine is specially recommended to:

Vaccine induces high level of specific anti-influenza immunity formation. Post-vaccination protective effect usually comes in 8-12 days, and the immunity retains up to 12 months, including elderly people vaccinated. Protective anti-influenza antibody titers are detectable among 75-92% of the vaccinated of different age. Inclusion into the vaccine product of the immune modulator Polyoxidonium® with a wide spectrum of immune harmacological effect provides an increase of antigens immunogenicity and stability, permits to stimulate the immune memory, to decrease considerably the antigens content in vaccination dose, and to increase the organism resistance to other infections by the means of the immune status correction.
