HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Merck Sharp & Dohme is experiencing a supply interruption for OncoTICE® as follows:

OncoTICE® Vials
Mycobacterium bovis (Bacillus Calmette and Guerin (BCG) strain) 5 hundred million CFU

This supply interruption is due to an unexpected increase in demand as well as COVID-related supply chain issues. Merck Sharp & Dohme anticipate that limited availability is likely to extend into late-2024. However, the current out-of-stock situation is expected to be temporary.

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.
