Drug Availability

HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Pfizer is experiencing a supply interruption for heparin as follows:

DBL™ Heparin Sodium Injection BP
Heparin Sodium 5,000IU/1mL
ARTG 12881

Supplies of DBL™ Heparin Sodium 5,000IU/1mL are currently constrained. However, HPS Pharmacies has sourced an internationally registered alternative which may be accessed via the Special Access Scheme (SAS), if necessary. Please note that SAS alternatives are subject to a longer lead-time and different pricing as they must be sourced internationally.

Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units until supplies return to normal. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact Pfizer on 1800 675 229 or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
