National Vaccine Shortage

Hodnet Medical Centre has posted a news item on its website concerning the national shortage of Hepatitis A and B vaccines. The announcement, which can be found at the foot of the front page, reads:

Vaccine shortage

There is a global shortage of Hepatitis A and B vaccines impacting severely on UK supply, This is due to intermittent manufacturing issues which have resulted in increased demand on all manufacturers’ supplies of vaccine.

We are also currently experiencing a shortage of Pneumococcal (pneumonia) vaccine, and Revaxis (Diphteria Tetanus and Polio) vaccine. It is not clear when these vaccines will become available.
