Please contact us if you have any questions.

  • Sanofi Pasteur reports a delay of vaccine delivery of August shipments to September due to production and regulatory delays. They are not predicting a shortage of vaccine but a delay across the entire brand to be experienced by all customers. The majority of their vaccine shipments will be delivered in September and October. http://www.ogs.ny.gov/purchase/spg/awards/1020022555CAN.HTM Sanofi Pasteur, Inc.: 10200-22555
