Hi and thank you for your inquiry. This is a general answer to the question asked. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to talk to us privately.

The usage of Influvac has to be as per its direction. It means, that if it needed to be refrigerated before use it must be done so because there is a risk of it is not working when exposed to higher temperature such as the room temperature or in even worst circumstances where it can lead to active infection when taken. To be on the safe side, it is advisable for you to discard the old vaccine and get the new one to prevent any harm done to you. You can talk to us through this link (DoctorOnCallEPharma) in regards to the appropriateness and type of vaccine you can take. Thank you.
