GSK Hepatitis B vaccine availability

Twinrix 

We are anticipating an intermittent stock out for Twinrix Adult (combined hepatitis A and B vaccine) in July 2017. 

Twinrix Junior  (combined hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccine) continues to be available.

We understand that this stock out may be distressing for those who are not covered by government programs and who may be required to vaccinate themselves for occupational reasons or because they are planning on travelling to hepatitis-affected areas.

We are working to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

 

Engerix-B 

GSK is currently experiencing an on-going supply constraint of Engerix-B® Adult dose (hepatitis B surface antigen recombinant (yeast) vaccine) in Australia. Production is now back to normal however, it will take time to re-build capacity.

At this stage we are unable to confirm a re-supply date.

Engerix-B Paediatric is still available.

Supply of GSK vaccines containing hepatitis B to Government programs is not impacted.

 

Please visit the TGA website for ongoing updates to supply.
