Unlike seasonal influenza, an influenza pandemic is an unpredictable event that occurs when a flu virus evolves and travels rapidly around the world infecting a great number of people. In a pandemic situation, it may be necessary to rapidly develop and produce a new vaccine.

All our facilities for producing seasonal influenza vaccines are specially designed to be able to switch to the production of a pandemic influenza vaccine should the need arise.
