    Sufficient storage space is also needed for vaccines. If a vaccine refrigerator is packed too tightly, temperature fluctuations can occur and potentially make the flu vaccine and your other vaccine stock unusable. Some practices may want to consider a flu vaccine refrigerator, a separate refrigerator to use just during flu season. A small increased risk of GBS was associated with an influenza vaccine in the United States in Since then, close surveillance has shown that GBS occurs at a very low rate of up to 1 in 1 million doses of influenza vaccine, if at all. Complex regional pain syndrome. Complex regional pain syndrome is an uncommon and poorly understood.

    The influenza vaccination provider toolkit has been developed to assist providers with managing roll-out and implementation of their flu vaccination program in Information about the influenza vaccine presentations is available on the influenza vaccine information sheet.

People with chronic medical conditions: During periods of high influenza incidence, hospitalizations of adults with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or chronic lung, renal, or liver conditions may increase two- to fivefold, depending on age group.

13 Influenza-related hospitalization rates in adults, cancer are significantly higher than for the general population, making this population a particularly high-risk group. A history of Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks following receipt of influenza vaccine is a precaution for the use of influenza vaccine.
