HOW SAFE ARE SANOFI PASTEUR’S VACCINES?
There is every chance that you or one of your loved ones will have a vaccine from Sanofi Pasteur at least once in your life.
Whether it’s a flu-shot for yourself or a frail, elderly parent, the HPV-vaccine for your teenager or the MMR-jab for your baby, it is highly likely that the vaccine will come from the world’s largest vaccine-manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur.
But how safe are their vaccines really?
In April 2012 the FDA (American Food And Drug Administration) inspected two of Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccine-manufacturing plants. One in Toronto, Canada and one near Lyon in France.
The FDA found numerous breaches of safety regulations and procedures. They even found a bird’s nest in a grille leading to a vent, connected to one of the vaccine production facilities!
The inspections revealed breaches of such a serious nature that the FDA issued a stern warning letter to Sanofi Pasteur. The letter is very technical, BUT it raises serious and disturbing questions about the safety of ALL of Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccines.
The FDA writes:
“You (Sanofi Pasteur) failed to thoroughly investigate any unexplained discrepancy or the failure of a batch or any of its components to meet any of its specifications and to extend the investigation to other batches of the same drug product and other drug products (my italics) that may have been associated with the specific failure or discrepancy “
The FDA also issues this damning verdict:
“The deficiencies described …… issued at the close of each inspection referenced above and this letter are an indication of your quality control units not fulfilling their responsibility to assure the identity, strength, quality, and purity of your licensed biological drug products and intermediates. “
The safety breaches are numerous and so serious that the FDA wants Sanofi Pasteur to undertake a GLOBAL check on all of its plants.
“FDA expects Sanofi to undertake a comprehensive and global assessment of all of its manufacturing operations to ensure that all products conform to FDA requirements. “
The FDA ends it letter by once again raising the issue of how safe Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccines really are.
“Neither this letter, nor the observations listed on each Form FDA 483 presented at the conclusion of the inspections, are intended to be an all-inclusive list of deviations that may exist at your facilities.”
