Single-Dose Vials of Yellow Fever Vaccine Again Available

Single-dose vials of yellow fever vaccine are again available in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), but with limitations on the quantity ordered.

Sanofi pasteur, manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine available in the United States, has informed CDC that single-dose vials are again available following a shortage announced in January. The limitations on quantity are intended to help the manufacturer rebuild its inventory. Five-dose vials are still available, and CDC recommends that clinics schedule vaccinations to use these efficiently.

Call sanofi pasteur for more information on ordering vaccine: 1-800-VACCINE (1-800-822-2463). Updates on yellow fever vaccine availability, and the countries requiring and recommending vaccination can be found online in CDC’s Travelers’ Health section.
