2018 Special note regarding the Yellow Fever vaccine: The Florida Department of Health, Immunization Section is sharing an important announcement regarding yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) supply and provider certification. Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine licensed in the United States (YF-Vax), has announced that YF-Vax will be unavailable from mid-2017 through mid-2018, as they transition to a new production facility. To provide access to Yellow fever vaccine for US travelers, Sanofi Pasteur has coordinated with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other stakeholders on a contingency plan. They have been granted approval by FDA to distribute Stamaril yellow fever vaccine in the United States during the YF-Vax shortage. Also, produced by Sanofi Pasteur, Stamaril is licensed and marketed in more than 70 countries outside the United States. Stamaril has been used in other countries for decades and is comparable in safety and efficacy to YF-Vax. Stamaril will be distributed through an Expanded Access Investigational New Drug (IND) protocol at designated clinical sites, located across the country.
