Govt working to end vaccine shortage
Government is continuing to work on resolving a shortage of vaccines on the Island.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Health said the department has received a shipment of Gardisil and has begun to disperse it to physicians.
The department was however waiting for shipments of Pentaxim and Pediatric Hepatitis B. Typhim/PPD and Tdap/Adacel remain on order from their respective suppliers.
The spokeswoman added: “It should be noted that the Department of Health is in communication with physician offices as vaccines arrive and a balanced dispensing policy is in place so all offices have some access to vaccines.
“The public is reminded that vaccines that may not be available for sale to their private physicians’ offices may still be administered at the Government Health Clinics until this situation has been rectified.”
