U.S. FDA Licenses Sanofi Pasteur's New Influenza Vaccine Manufacturing Facility
Date:5/6/2009

WHO and national health authorities request that influenza vaccine manufacturers start supplying vaccine to protect against the new influenza A (H1N1) virus," said Wayne Pisano, President and CEO of sanofi pasteur. "With the licensure of this new influenza vaccine production facility, Sanofi Pasteur now has additional flexibility to produce seasonal influenza vaccine and to respond to requests from public health authorities to develop an A (H1N1) vaccine."

As the world's leading influenza vaccine manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur produces approximately 40 percent of the influenza vaccines distributed worldwide and in the U.S. produced more than 45 percent of the influenza vaccines distributed for the 2008-2009 influenza season.

About Influenza

Influenza is a highly-contagious respiratory illness with severe health implications that, at times, can lead to death. Influenza viruses spread in respiratory droplets caused by coughing and sneezing. They usually spread from person to person, though sometimes people become infected by touching something with influenza virus on it and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Globally, seasonal influenza causes between three and five million cases of severe illness and 250,000 to 500,000 deaths every year. In the U.S. on average each year, one out of five Americans suffers from seasonal influenza, approximately 226,000 are hospitalized, and 36,000 die from seasonal influenza and its complications. The best way to prevent influenza is to get an influenza vaccination.

In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that health-care providers begin offering seasonal influenza vaccine as soon as vaccine becomes available in late August or September, and to continue immunization efforts throughout the season. Health-care providers are urged to continue immunization efforts until the end of influenza season. Approximately 2
