Seasonal influenza vaccine high dose boosting in solid organ transplant recipients


This is a prospective, randomized control trial that will assess neutralizing antibody titers in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients that receive 2 doses of the high-dose (HD) influenza vaccine during a influenza season. We will evaluate the immunogenicity of 2 doses of the high dose influenza vaccine utilizing neutralizing antibody assays. The control group will receive 1 HD influenza vaccine and a placebo injection.
