Novartis begins shipment of seasonal influenza vaccines to US market
Date:8/21/2013

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novartis announced today that it has begun shipment of its seasonal influenza vaccines to customers in the US market for the 2013-2014 season. Novartis plans to ship a minimum of 30 million doses of its influenza vaccines to the US market, including Fluvirin (Influenza Virus Vaccine), approved for use in people 4 years of age and older, and Flucelvax (Influenza Virus Vaccine), approved for use in adults 18 years of age and older. In clinical studies, both vaccines demonstrated safety and were shown to help protect against WHO-identified strains of the influenza virus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends routine seasonal influenza vaccination for all individuals 6 months of age and older. In addition, the CDC advises that it is especially important for certain high-risk groups to receive an influenza vaccine each season, including: people over the age of 50; children under the age of 5; people with chronic illnesses; people with immunosuppression; and residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities1,2.

"Last year's flu season, which peaked early and was intense, is a significant reminder of the importance of annual seasonal flu vaccination," said Dr. William Schaffner, professor of medicine and preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. "The CDC recommends annual influenza vaccination for all adults, and getting a flu vaccine is an important step in protecting one's health."

Novartis plans to complete the majority of shipments of Fluvirin and Flucelvax by October, in advance of the peak of influenza season. The Novartis portfolio of influenza vaccines helps to ensure diversity of supply to help meet demand and offers providers and consumers options for flu vaccination.

"Each year, Novartis is proud to help meet a significant p
