Shingrix, which has already been approved for use in the European Union, the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia, brought in 357 million pounds (US$452.03 million) in the latest quarter.

The company said the vaccine will be introduced in phases, starting in 2020 to ensure reliable supply to all countries, where it has been launched.
