Sanofi Pasteur Brings Fluzone(R) Intradermal Vaccine Coop De Quill VacciNation Tour To Raleigh CVS/pharmacy To Raise Awareness About Importance Of Annual Flu Immunization And Vaccine Options For Adults

SWIFTWATER, Pa. and RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanofi Pasteur will bring its Fluzone ® Intradermal Vaccine Coop de Quill VacciNation Tour to Raleigh on Thursday, Oct. 18, as part of its cross-country efforts to raise awareness about the seriousness of influenza and the various vaccine options that are available for adults 18 through 64 years of age this flu season.

In an effort to help improve flu immunization rates, Sanofi Pasteur's Fluzone Intradermal Vaccine Coop de Quill VacciNation Tour will visit the CVS/pharmacy at 6840 Glenwood Ave. in Raleigh, which also has a MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinic, for a flu clinic event. The event intends to educate adults about available vaccine options and encourage annual influenza immunization.

"Getting a flu shot is the first and most important step you can take to help protect yourself and your family from getting or spreading the flu," said Papatya Tankut, RPh, Vice President, Pharmacy Professional Services at CVS/pharmacy. "We are pleased to be working with Sanofi Pasteur to inform the Raleigh community about the importance of getting a flu shot and which vaccine option may be right for them. Helping protect more people from the flu is one of the ways to help customers on their path to better health."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), everyone six months of age and older should receive an annual influenza vaccination, yet only 37 percent of adults in North Carolina 18 through 64 years of age were immunized during the 2010-2011 flu season, leaving far too many unprotected and at risk for spreading the virus to those at high-risk like young children and older adults.

Results from a recent national telephone survey of 663 adults revealed these low rates highlight a disconnect between fear and action, as two out of every three (67 percent) adults 18 through 64 years of age said if they had influenza, they fear spreading the virus to their loved ones, yet three in five (61 percent) adults said they are not vaccinated annually.
