Auvi-Q Recall!!!

Sanofi Pharmaceuticals has issued a voluntary recall of Auvi-Q autoinjectors. I checked your child's Auvi-Q that I have in the clinic and the lot number is with in the recall group. Please provide a new Epi Pen to the clinic as soon as possible. Here is a small portion of the recall notice:

This includes lot number 2299596 through 3037230, which expire March 2016 through December 2016. The products have been found to potentially have inaccurate dosage delivery.

Update - Measels Outbreak
Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus. It spreads through the air through coughing and sneezing. Measles starts with a fever, runny nose, cough, red eyes, and sore throat, and is followed by a rash that spreads all over the body. About three out of 10 people who get measles will develop one or more complications including pneumonia, ear infections, or diarrhea. Complications are more common in adults and young children.

From January 1 to February 6, 2015, 121 people from 17 states and Washington DC were reported to have measles [AZ (7), CA (88), CO (1), DC (1), DE (1), IL (3), MI (1), MN (1), NE (2), NJ (1), NY (2), NV (2), OR (1), PA (1), SD (2) TX (1), UT (2), WA (4)]*. Most of these cases [103 cases (85%)] are part of a large, ongoing multi-state outbreak linked to an amusement park in California.

* CDC will update this data weekly on Mondays.

The United States experienced a record number of measles cases during 2014, with 644 cases from 27 states reported to CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD). This is the greatest number of cases since measles elimination was documented in the U.S. in 2000.

Measles cases and outbreaks from January 1-February 6, 2015. 121 cases reported in 17 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Washington. One outbreak represents 85% of reported cases this year. Annual reported cases have ranged from a low of 37 in 2004 to a high of 644 in 2014. Data are provisional for cases in 2015.

  • The majority of the people who got measles were unvaccinated.
  • Measles is still common in many parts of the world including some countries in Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa.
  • Travelers with measles continue to bring the disease into the U.S.
  • Measles can spread when it reaches a community in the U.S. where groups of people are unvaccinated.
