FluMist(R) Begins Shipping for 2009-2010 Influenza Season
Date:7/28/2009

GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- MedImmune announced today that it has begun shipping its seasonal influenza vaccine FluMist((R) )(Influenza Vaccine Live, Intranasal) to vaccine distributors who service health care providers throughout the United States. MedImmune expects approximately 10 million doses of its trivalent (three-strain) nasal spray flu vaccine will be available for the 2009-2010 influenza season through a variety of private health care practices, public health departments, school-based vaccination programs, military bases, and other locations.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics advise that flu vaccine be administered every year as soon as it becomes available. A MedImmune analysis suggests that starting influenza vaccination in August instead of October may help reach an additional 11.5 million children at already-scheduled healthcare provider visits.

The 2009-2010 influenza season is the first for full implementation of the recommendations by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) that children six months through the age of 18 years be vaccinated annually against influenza, meaning 30 million additional children 5 through 18 years of age now fall within influenza vaccination recommendations.

"MedImmune is committed to delivering our seasonal nasal spray influenza vaccine in the summer months in order to increase opportunities for vaccination," said Alex Zukiwski, MD, MedImmune's Executive Vice President, Clinical Research & Chief Medical Officer. "If more eligible children can be vaccinated against seasonal influenza while attending back-to-school checkups, sports physicals, and clinics early in the school year, the country will be better prepared for the flu season ahead."

FluMist is available in every state through the feder
