AAH to distribute Bexsero MenB vaccine
February 22 2016
AAH Pharmaceuticals has announced that it will be distributing the Bexsero meningococcal b vaccine for the first time.
The announcement follows the acquisition by GlaxoSmithKline of the Novartis Vaccines business with effect from March 1. Other vaccines that will be affected will include the Menveo meningococcal ACWY conjugate vaccine and the Rabipur rabies vaccine.
As GSK will be putting a block on ordering the vaccines between 5pm on February 25 and March 1 to allow for the necessary changes, AAH is advising pharmacies to check they have adequate supplies until ordering resumes.
Medical enquiries regarding Bexsero should be directed to GSK on 0845 745 1500 or for Menveo and Rabipur enquiries on 0808 100 9997. Any other questions regarding these agreements should be directed to the AAH account executive.
