Leaders in influenza
Seqirus is a global leader in influenza vaccines and a transcontinental partner in pandemic preparedness, with extensive research and production expertise and manufacturing plants in the U.S., U.K. and Australia.
Seqirus is the largest cell-based influenza vaccine manufacturer in the world. We also utilize egg-based influenza vaccine production and have developed the only adjuvanted seasonal influenza vaccine for people 65 years and older. Our scientists continue to optimize these innovative technologies while working on longer-term transformational approaches to influenza protection.
As part of the CSL Group, we have been producing influenza vaccine in Melbourne, Australia since the 1940’s. Our site in Liverpool U.K., is a Centre of Excellence for adjuvanted influenza vaccine manufacturing while our state-of-the-art production facility in Holly Springs U.S., was purpose-built to harness newer cell-based technology.
