POST 00611E : DESTRUCTION OF VACCINES 19 October 2003 __________________________ NOTE: The TechNet21 Website has been updated. Thanks to Spanner for his "Best Practice" story and Mark Muscat for the beautiful travel quiz picture. Go and have a look! at : http://www.technet21.org You are all invited to submit stories and pictures for the "Best Practice" corner, or a picture for the travel quiz Archives have also been edited as the last posting in September had been misclassified. Sorry about this. The Moderator _______________________________ Peter Carrasco (mailto:[log in to unmask]) from PAHO is informing us of recommendations on the destruction of unused vaccines. These appeared in an issue of PAHO "EPI Newsletter" in 1997. As the rest of the information in the newsletter is likely outdated, only references and the relevant part were isolated in the separate attached document. Below is Peter's message. ______________________________________ Dear Technet Members, FCH/IM, PAHO/AMRO is pleased to attach a copy of our Newsletter from October 1997 in which an article appears on the destruction of unused vaccine vials. We hope that all may find this information useful.
