Will providers receive additional ancillary supplies if they are using multi-dose vials to administer vaccine to children aged 6-35 months?

No. CDC allocates ancillary kits for the multi-dose formulation based on individuals aged 3 years and older. The CSL and Sanofi H1N1 multi-dose vial vaccine formulations will continue to be ordered as a 100 dose (0.5mL per dose) minimum order size and CDC will allocate one multi-dose vial ancillary supply kit for each 100 doses of multi-dose vial vaccine. If providers choose to administer half doses (0.25mL) of the multi-dose vial formulation to children aged 6-35 months, they will effectively be short half the number of needle/syringe units, alcohol pads, vaccination record cards and sharps containers. Providers will be required to use their own ancillary supplies to make up the difference and print out additional shot record cards from the CDC website.
