AAFP, CDC Announce Change to Childhood Immunization Schedule
Pfizer Recalls One Lot of Prevnar 13
By News Staff
The revised footnote appears as an erratum in the March 2 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
In other vaccine news, New York, N.Y.-based Pfizer Inc. recently announced it is voluntarily recalling one lot of its 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (Prevnar 13) in 0.5-mL prefilled syringes. The recall is being conducted at the wholesale level only.
Pfizer, which markets the vaccine in the United States, initiated the recall after it was discovered that the lot was formulated and filled with expired serotype 3 conjugate material.
The affected lot number is F73652, with an expiration date of Sept. 30, 2013.
