The recombinant vaccine Flubok Quadrivalent does not contain the virus. (NDC 49281-721)

Also look into these Quadrivalent Influenza vaccines, as they appear to contain inactivated (dead) flu virus (there may be others as well):

- AFLURIA Quadrivalent (NDC 33332-221)

https:/­/­www.fda.gov/­media/­117022/­download

- FluLaval Quadrivalent (NDC 19515-818)

https:/­/­www.fda.gov/­media/­115785/­download

- Flucelvax Quadrivalent (NDC 70461-321)

https:/­/­www.fda.gov/­media/­115862/­download

- Fluzone Quadrivalent (NDC 49281-121)

https:/­/­www.fda.gov/­media/­139731/­download

Be sure to check with the pharmacy or wherever else you'd get the vaccine ahead of time and ask them which one they are administering. Confirm whether it contains the inactivated (dead virus) or the attenuated (weakened live virus).

The CDC also has a good resource on the different kinds of flu vaccines:

Hope this helps!
