In 2015, Sanofi Pasteur provided approximately 1 billion doses of vaccines, making it possible to immunize approximately 500 million people across the globe against 20 serious diseases. Sanofi Pasteur operates in the vaccine industry. In the U.S., Sanofi Pasteur is the major producer of influenza and meningitis vaccines.

In addition, Sanofi Pasteur is a key supplier to publicly funded international markets, such as UNICEF, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI). Pediatric, Combination and Poliomyelitis (Polio) Vaccines Sanofi Pasteur is one of the key players in pediatric vaccines in both mature and emerging markets with a portfolio of standalone and combination vaccines protecting against up to six diseases in a single injection. Pentaxim is a pediatric combination vaccine protecting against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). As of December 31, 2015, approximately 230 million doses of Pentaxim had been distributed in approximately 100 countries, and the vaccine has been included in the national immunization programs of approximately 25 countries. Hexaxim is the only fully liquid, ready to use, 6-in-1 (hexavalent) pediatric vaccine that provides protection against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, Hib and hepatitis B. In 2013, the EMA approved this hexavalent pediatric vaccine in the E.U., where it is sold under the brand name Hexyon in Western Europe by Sanofi Pasteur MSD and under the brand name Hexacima in Eastern Europe by Sanofi Pasteur. The roll-out of this new hexavalent vaccine began in 2013 in Germany and has ramped up with 27 countries having launched Hexaxim in their public or private immunization programs. In 2014, the WHO granted prequalification status to Hexaxim, in a one-dose vial presentation. Hexaxim is the only combination vaccine, including acellular pertussis (acP) and inactivated polio vaccines (IPV) currently prequalified by the WHO. Pentacel is a pediatric combination vaccine protecting against five diseases (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Hib).

It is used as a booster to be administered as the fifth dose in the primary series of vaccines, allowing children to complete the entire childhood schedule with as few injections as possible. Quadracel was already licensed in Canada (1997) and Australia (2002) and was licensed in the U.S. in April 2015. The U.S. commercial launch of Quadracel is planned for 2016. Shan5, developed by Shantha, is a fully-liquid 5-in-1 vaccine, protecting against five diseases (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Hepatitis B).
