Flu Shot Ingredients?

Does anyone have a link to a reputable website that lists the ingredients for this year's 3-in-1 flu vaccine? Thanks!

  • if you go to the pink books at the cdc website, you will find good information...but it hasn't been updated since 2009.
    i don' t really think the ingredients...the adjuvants, and the preservatives have changed...

  • That's what I thought to, but if it's there, they've hidden it well.

  • I'm not going to a doctor...or getting the vaccine. I'm just trying to find a list of ingredients and I'm surprised that they seem to be so hard to find. Uhhh....yes, I am intelligent enough to research things for myself. I'm not the type to just take the doctor's word for everything.
