Sanofi investit 170 M€ contre la grippe

La nouvelle est tombée dans la matinée du jeudi 12 octobre 2017. Le groupe pharmaceutique va investir 170 M€ dans une nouvelle unité de production.

Le nouveau bâtiment, dont l'entreprise espère la fin des travaux pour 2021 et le lancement de la production pour 2022, sera dévolu à la production de Vaxigrip Tetra, le plus récent des vaccins antigrippaux de Sanofi, actuellement distribué dans vingt pays. Ce vaccin quadrivalent contient les 2 souches A et les 2 souches B du virus de la grippe et fournit donc une couverture maximale contre le virus.

Le site normand de Val-de-Reuil, crée en 1976 est le leader mondial dans la production de vaccins contre la grippe. Elle expédie 900 millions de doses de vaccin chaque année dans le monde entier.

Selon David Loew, vice-président exécutif de Sanofi et responsable de Sanofi Pasteur, " la grippe représente toujours un enjeu majeur de santé publique dans le monde, entraînant de graves complications, des hospitalisations et des décès, en particulier pour certaines personnes à haut risque ". "En tant que leader mondial des vaccins contre la grippe, cet agrandissement renforce la capacité de Sanofi Pasteur dans sa lutte contre ce problème de santé publique sous-estimé", précise-t-il.

Au total, 200 millions de doses sont produites chaque année par Sanofi au sein de ses quatre usines, en France, aux États-Unis, au Mexique et en Chine.
