A Review of the Vaccines Marketed in China: 63 Varieties of Vaccines from 45 Enterprises

However, there have been frequently vaccine accidents in recent years:

In 2013, the Ministry of Public Security of China uncovered an extraordinary serious case of production and sales of fake and inferior human rabies vaccine; in December of the same year, many infants died after injection with hepatitis B vaccine and DPT vaccine

In 2014, a baby girl died after receiving hepatitis B vaccine in Guangzhou

In 2016, Shandong illegal vaccine case affected many provinces in China

In November 2017, Changchun Changsheng sold unqualified DPT vaccine

On July 15, 2018, production of Changchun Changsheng’s rabies vaccine violated provisions of GMP

I.     Both President Xi and Premier Li Keqiang made important directives regarding Changchun Changsheng vaccine incident

Vaccines are a serious matter. Both President Xi and Premier Li Keqiang have instructed relevant departments to investigate thoroughly, and improve the vaccine management system with a firm determination mustered.

Premier Li Keqiang required a clear explanation to the Chinese people. I don’t want to comment on Changchun Changsheng incident here, but will give a rough review of the vaccines marketed in China at present.

According to the statistical data of Evaluate Pharma, the global vaccine market approached USD 30 billion in 2017, wherein, GSK, MSD, Sanofi and Pfizer are the “Four Heavenly Kings” on the vaccine market, with accumulated market share of 90.1%.

The release system is implemented for vaccine sales in China. The release work is jointly advanced by the National Institutes for Food and Drug Control of China and 7 provincial pharmaceutical product inspection institutions authorized to undertake biological product release.

The situation is roughly as follows: 1. Overall, Chinese-produced vaccines account for the main part of the marketed vaccines (as shown in the following figure), reaching above 90%;
