Influenzinum 9c is a homeopathic flu remedy that is updated yearly based on the flu strains predicted by the World Health Organization (WHO). The tiny pellets dissolve easily in your mouth and contain the same viral strains as the conventional flu vaccine, diluted to 1 part per billion, which eliminates the need to use mercury as a preservative. This preparation greatly reduces the risk of side effects, and is safe for all ages.
Boiron’s Influenzinum is a dilution of the flu vaccine used during the current flu season in the northern hemisphere.
This flu vaccine contains these virus strains, expected to be the most common ones circulating during the 2022-2023 flu season.
The final composition of the influenza vaccines for the 2022-2023 influenza season in the Northern Hemisphere, used for the manufacture of Boiron INFLUENZINUM 9C homeopathic globules is therefore as follows:
- an A/Victoria/2570/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;
- an A/Darwin/9/2021 (H3N2)-like virus;
- a B/Austria/1359417/2021-like virus (B/Victoria lineage); and
- a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus (B/Yamagata lineage).
The first 3 Influenza strains are recommended viral strains for use in trivalent influenza vaccines, and the last is an additional virus strain recommended for quadrivalent influenza vaccines.
The French laboratory Boiron manufactures the homeopathic medicine Influenzinum 9CH 2022-2023 9 C, whose composition differs from that of last year's vaccine.
Because the virus mutates constantly, WHO observatories defines in advance (around July) which strains of viruses are most likely to be circulating. Vaccine manufacturers have to develop vaccines according to these guidelines.
Of course, Influenzinum changes every year to reflect the vaccine changes and the mutation of influenza virus. This is why, despite Influenzinum having a 5-year expiration date, it is only valid for as long as the same vaccine is on the market: one flu season, with very rare exceptions.
IMPORTANT: Influenzinum is NOT a vaccine, doesn’t prevent the flu and must NOT be presented as such, per FDA guidelines.
Made according to the guidelines of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).
