You’ll Be shocked by what they use to make this vaccine, hit the jump for more!


Flublok is the new insect-based flu vaccine! And Yes it has been approved by the FDA lol. A ordinary Flu vaccine uses chicken eggs to grow, see in order to be produced, the virus must be isolated from the patients’ blood, purified and injected into specific kinds of chicken eggs to grow. Flublok on the other hand uses insects instead of chicken eggs and is made by injecting flu genes into an insect virus and growing it in caterpillar cells, interesting. Flublok has been approved for use in adults ages 18 to 49, and 150,000 doses of the it have already been made. Go Get Your FluBlok lol!
