HHS Awards MedImmune Contract to Manufacture Live Attenuated Nasal Spray Vaccine for Novel Influenza A (H1N1)
Date:6/1/2009

it is live and stimulates a broad range of immune responses, LAIV may offer some cross-protection against circulating flu strains that are "drifted" - meaning they are very closely-related but not perfectly matched to the flu strains in the vaccine.

As a needle-free nasal spray, LAIV is well suited to facilitate mass vaccination, and has been widely used for school-based vaccinations and to help protect active-duty military personnel.

While MedImmune is committed to supporting global efforts to help protect individuals against the Novel Influenza A (H1N1) virus, its vaccine technology is currently only licensed in the United States. MedImmune is willing to make additional vaccine available to other governments if any capacity remains after fulfilling obligations to the U.S. government, assuming that necessary regulatory approval can be obtained.

Seasonal FluMist(R) on Track to Begin Shipping in August

MedImmune believes that the best way to help protect all eligible age groups against seasonal influenza is to vaccinate prior to and during the back-to-school period. The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends influenza vaccination for all age groups as soon as seasonal vaccine is available each year. MedImmune plans to begin shipping the first of approximately 10 million doses of seasonal FluMist(R) (Influenza Virus Vaccine Live, Intranasal) to health care providers in August. This early availability of vaccine significantly widens the window of opportunity to vaccinate more eligible individuals and improve seasonal influenza vaccination rates, as patients seeing their providers for routine office visits can be vaccinated without waiting for the rush of fall vaccination clinics.
