How Is the Influenza Vaccine Made?
Manufacturing the influenza vaccine for market distribution can take several months. Because the manufacturing process relies heavily on unpredictable development cycles, flu vaccine supply can be somewhat volatile. That’s why it’s so important to pre-book your flu vaccine! Don’t be caught without a secure supply of flu vaccine when influenza season hits hard!
When Can Manufacturers of Flu Vaccine Produce Market Supply?
Before mass production of the flu vaccine can begin, influenza vaccines must be submitted to the FDA for testing at the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. The flu vaccines are tested at two stages to ensure effectiveness and safety – monovalent (single strain) and triplevalent (three strains combined). This process is repeated for each lot of flu vaccines to be manufactured.
