DAV orders imports of vaccines

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2010 at 6:11 am

Drug Administration of Vietnam (DAV) has instructed importers and distributors to make large orders for foreign-made vaccines to cover an urgent shortage in HCMC and Hanoi.

DAV instructed clinics, who were waiting for imports of three-in-one vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella, to use individual vaccines until stocks arrive.

The drug administration said there was a general shortage of all vaccines especially in the major cities and told preventative health clinics to provide distributors with lists of vaccines they need.

Supplies of five-in-one vaccines for Hib, diphtheria, whooping-cough, tetanus and poliomyelitis have already been restocked, DAV said.

After four years since the project, “enhancing the ability to produce measles vaccine in Vietnam,” was implemented, the Center for Research and Production of Vaccines and Biology (POLYVAC) has been able to provide high-quality vaccines for Vietnam’s expanded vaccination program.

Following the success of the measles vaccine production, POLYVAC has continued research to produce a rubella vaccine and combined vaccines, like MR (measles and rubella) and MMR (measles, mumps and rubella).
