We have been asked to remind contractors to fill in these vital stocktake Currently there are a large number of pharmacies that have not reported their stock takes. If you are having problems with foundry we would suggest you email SVOC direct to let them know your stock take and also to get help accessing foundry.
Secondly SVOC are asking sites to highlight early, ideally at least 10 days ahead of expiry, any vaccines that they believe they will not use before they expire. Sites should flag by emailing SVOC mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org.
Given the current reduced demand the potential for vaccines to go out of date is high so can we remind you to ensure you keep an eye on 'use by' dates and ensure you use the shortest dated vaccines first. Please bear in mind re-deployed stock (Mutual Aid) may have shorter expiry when received.
