Sanofi Pasteur Starts Shipping Influenza Vaccine for the 2011-2012 Season
Date:7/18/2011

SWIFTWATER, Pa., July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of Sanofi (EURONEXT: SAN and NYSE: SNY), announced today that it began shipping its 2011-2012 Fluzone® Influenza Virus Vaccine in the U.S. This shipment represents the first of approximately 70 million doses of seasonal influenza vaccine the company plans to deliver to the U.S. in the upcoming season.

"As the largest producer of influenza vaccine in the U.S., supplying more than 40 percent of the nation's influenza vaccine, our goal is to continue supporting the fight against influenza by consistently delivering a reliable supply of influenza vaccine to U.S. health-care providers," said Damian Braga, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Sanofi Pasteur. "With the licensure of Fluzone Intradermal vaccine earlier this year and Fluzone High-Dose vaccine at the end of 2009, for the first time this season, Sanofi Pasteur will be offering four influenza vaccine options to help address the unique immunization needs of all age groups in support of public health recommendations for everyone 6 months of age and older to receive an annual influenza immunization."

Fluzone vaccine, which health-care providers have relied upon for more than 40 years, will again be provided this season in two formulations: 0.25 mL pediatric dose for children 6 months through 35 months of age and 0.5 mL dose for children and adults 36 months and older.

Fluzone High-Dose vaccine, which was a new vaccine available in limited quantities last season following licensure at the end of 2009, will be widely available this season for adults 65 years of age and older. Adults in this age group suffer disproportionately from influenza and its complications. Due to weaker immune systems, people 65 years of age and older often do not produce as much antibody as younger people following influenza imm
