The vaccine met all release requirements at the time of distribution. Sanofi Pasteur is taking this action because these lots are at risk for lower antigen content. There is no safety concern related to this action. Sanofi Pasteur asks that you promptly examine your inventory. If you have any remaining doses from the above lots of the prefilled syringes or the 20-dose vials, PLEASE DO NOT USE THESE DOSES. Instructions for returning product are included in the Recall Notification.
