Further to DrugAlert Volume 162, HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Pfizer Australia have given notice of a return to normal supply of:
Sodium Bicarbonate Wide-Necked Glass Vial
8.4% 100mL x 10
Pfizer product code: 19041084
Aust R: 10801
This shortage of Sodium Bicarbonate 8.4% 100mL vials was forecast to possibly last until March 2014, but has now been fully resolved.
The interim use of Phebra Sodium Bicarbonate 8.4%, 10mL vials is no longer necessary, and HPS Pharmacies can now fulfil any outstanding requirements.
Please retain this notice in a prominent position, including other related business units as a reminder for all staff members 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 do not hesitate to contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies or Pfizer Trade Operations on 1800 629 921.
Information regarding expected dates for supply may vary subject to delays which are out of our control. HPS Pharmacies does not accept responsibility for such changes but will endeavour to keep our clients updated as information is made available from drug manufacturers or wholesalers.
