Hepatitis B Vaccine Supply Update

Health Protection Scotland has issued a letter to colleagues concerning the global shortage of adult hepatitis B vaccine which is currently having a severe impact on the UK supply.  This has been distributed to healthcare professionals across GGC and is available on the Medicines Supply Problem page (click here).

The situation was particularly critical during August and there are likley to be some continuing limitations on supply until early 2018.
