How to Become an Authorized Yellow Fever Vaccine Provider in the State of Indiana

Announcement: Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) licensed in the United States, has announced that YF-Vax will be unavailable from mid-2017 to mid-2018 because of delays in the production process. Sanofi Pasteur applied and received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to make another yellow fever vaccine available in the United States under an investigational new drug (IND) program. Manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur in France, this vaccine, Stamaril, is registered and distributed in more than 70 countries. It is comparable in safety and efficacy to YF-Vax.

In order to meet the requirements of the IND program, Sanofi Pasteur can provide Stamaril to only a limited number of clinics. Sanofi has identified sites throughout the United States to include in the program so patients can have continued access to yellow fever vaccine. The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is not involved in the selection process for clinics to join the IND program and administer Stamaril. For more information, contact Sanofi Pasteur at 1-800-VACCINE (1-800-822-2463).

Once YF-Vax is no longer available, travelers and health care providers will be able to find locations that can administer Stamaril by visiting the yellow fever vaccination clinic search page.

 The ISDH is suspending new applications for Authorized Yellow Fever Vaccine Providers until YF-Vax is available in mid-2018.
