Safety & Efficacy

Vaccines have to be held to the highest standard of safety. Prior to their approval by the health authorities, our vaccines are tested extensively to ensure they are effective and safe. Once in use, they are also continually monitored for safety through our pharmacovigilance system.

Sanofi Pasteur commits itself to make available everywhere in the world the safest and most effective vaccines possible, developed, manufactured and distributed in a manner that respects both regulatory requirements and our Values.
