UPDATE: Yellow fever vaccine shortage in the US
Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) licensed in the United States, has announced YF-Vax will be unavailable from mid-2017 to mid-2018 because of delays in the production process. Sanofi Pasteur will fill existing orders for yellow fever vaccine providers until the current supply of vaccine is finished. Ordering is expected to resume in mid-2018 when the new production facility is completed. To fill the need for vaccine between 2017 and 2018, a different yellow fever vaccine, Stamaril, will be available at approximately 250 sites nationwide. Manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur in France, Stamaril is registered and distributed in more than 70 countries and is comparable in safety and efficacy to YF-Vax.
