Further supplies of quadrivalent flu vaccine available – suitable for at risk groups aged 18-65 years
Our local public health team has informed us that additional flu vaccines have been made available in the form of Vaxigrip Tetra – see information below.

Sanofi Pasteur Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine (split virion, inactivated) supplied as Vaxigrip Tetra
Due to higher demand for Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine (split virion, inactivated) than anticipated, Sanofi Pasteur have obtained approval from the MHRA to supply a batch of stock which is in Standard Export packaging. This batch is comprised of single packs which are labelled with Lot number R3K781V with an expiry date of 31/08/2019.

The product supplied in the Standard Export packaging is identical to the Sanofi Pasteur Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine (split virion, inactivated) product apart from the packaging and the tradename. On the Standard Export pack the tradename is ‘VaxigripTetra’.

The current national IM Influenza PGD and Pharmacy Influenza Vaccination PGD are not tradename specific and so can continue to be used to administer this product.
