The packaging for Synflorix® and Infanrix®-IPV is changing. The vaccine formulations have not changed.
The new Synflorix® packs have been designed to reduce the risk of breakage, be more secure (tamper-evident) and environmentally friendly. Lettering on the Synflorix® syringe has changed from green to black so it is easier to read. The new packaging is expected to arrive at practices from December 2012. A GSK letter about Synflorix® packaging changes will be mailed to all practices and will also go out with ProPharma orders during the first month the new packs are distributed.
The new Infanrix®-IPV packs have been designed to be more secure (tamper-evident), smaller in size and environmentally friendly. The new packaging is expected to begin arriving at practices from early to mid-May 2013.
