Telecon Body:
During this telecon, Novartis agreed to make the following suggested edits in the FLUCELVAX package insert for next year’s influenza season. 
  1. Under Section 8.5 Geriatric Use, the total number of subjects (currently list as “6711”) includes subjects from the site 2 of the lot consistency study which should be removed.  Please change the total number of subjects to “6281”, as it is listed in Section 6.1, and adjust the “percentage (numbers)” in the same sentence as needed.
  1. At the top of Table 5, please indicate the total number of subjects for the “18 through 49 Years” column and the “50 through 64 Years” column.
  1. The residual amount of BPL was not listed correctly in the current version of the PI.  It should be listed as ------(b)(4)------------ instead of “less than or equal to 0.5 mcg”.
