Caution For Usage
Instructions for Use/Handling: A fine white deposit with a clear, colourless supernatant may be observed upon storage of the syringe/vial. This does not constitute a sign of deterioration.
The content of the syringe/vial should be inspected visually both before and after shaking for any foreign particulate matter and/or abnormal physical appearance prior to administration.
In the event of either being observed, discard the vaccine.
The vaccine should be well-shaken before use.
When using a multidose vial, each 0.5 mL dose should be withdrawn using a sterile needle and syringe; precautions should be taken to avoid contamination of the contents.
Instructions for administration of the vaccine presented in pre-filled syringe: 1. Holding the syringe barrel in one hand (avoid holding the syringe plunger), unscrew the syringe cap by twisting it counterclockwise.
2. To attach the needle to the syringe, twist the needle clockwise into the syringe until lock is felt.
3. Remove the needle protector, which on occasion can be a little stiff.
4. Administer the vaccine.
Any unused product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
