Carbapenems are considered last-resort antibiotics used to treat human infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria. In 2011, VIM-1 carbapenemase-producing Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Infantis strains were isolated from livestock for the first time in Germany. Here, we announce the complete genome sequence of the first German blaVIM-1-harboring Salmonella Infantis isolate (15-SA01028) originating from food. Copyright © 2018 Borowiak et al.
