The pharmaceutical company NPO Petrovax Pharm has completed the supply programme of the Grippol® Plus flu vaccine for the season 2012–2013 within the National Preventive Vaccination Calendar. The company has shipped a total of c. 14 million doses of Grippol® Plus to Russian regions for childhood vaccinations.
This year NPO Petrovax Pharm started supplying the vaccine back in August, ahead of the season, in order to ensure preventive vaccination. The regions listed as priority by Rospotrebnadzor were the first to receive the vaccine. By the end of September it had been shipped to all the Russian regions; supplies to all the federal districts were completed ahead of schedule, in early November.
It stands to mention that this year NPO Petrovax Pharm has increased the volume of Grippol® Plus shipments by 1 million doses, in line with the Russian Ministry of Healthcare’s expansion of the vaccine indications to include infants aged 6 months and up.
