Notice on shortage of Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (acellular) vaccine


The Agency for Medicinal Products and Medical Devices (HALMED) as a competent authority for monitoring the supply of the Croatian market with medicines, is informing all wholesale license holders (wholesalers) that it is notified by the Croatian Institute for Public Health (CIPH) of the need for procurement of 10.000 doses of Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (acellular) vaccine.

HALMED is therefore inviting wholesalers to, in compliance with measures for protection of human health, in a shortest period, gather information on the availability of this vaccine quantity in other countries and submit them to HALMED. In accordance with the above, HALMED will, in agreement with CIPH reconsider placing on the market of available vaccines based on the accord for enter/import of medicines not authorised in Croatia (the so called "interventional import” procedure).
