Caution For Usage
Instructions for Use/Handling: Upon storage, a fine white deposit with a clear colourless supernatant may be observed. The vaccine should be well shaken before use to obtain a slightly opaque, white suspension.
The vaccine should be inspected visually for any foreign particulate matter and/or abnormal physical appearance prior to administration. In the event of either being observed, the vaccine should be discarded.
When using a multidose vial, each dose should be withdrawn with a sterile needle and syringe. As with other vaccines, a dose of vaccine should be withdrawn under strict aseptic conditions and precautions be taken to avoid contamination of the contents.
When using a vial, use different needles to pierce the rubber stopper and to inject the vaccine.
Any unused product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
Incompatibilities: Engerix-B should not be mixed with other vaccines.
