Pre-filled Syringe, 1 Dose (1 per package) – NDC 0005-2000-02.

After shipping, Prevnar 20 may arrive at temperatures between 2 ºC to 25 ºC (36 ºF to 77 ºF).

Upon receipt, store refrigerated at 2 ºC to 8 ºC (36 ºF to 46 ºF).

Syringes should be stored in the refrigerator horizontally to minimize the resuspension time.

Do not freeze. Discard if the vaccine has been frozen.

Prevnar 20 should be administered as soon as possible after being removed from refrigeration.

Prevnar 20 can be administered provided total (cumulative multiple excursions) time out of refrigeration (at temperatures between 8 °C and 25 °C) does not exceed 96 hours. Cumulative multiple excursions between 0 °C and 2 °C are also permitted as long as the total time between 0 °C and 2 °C does not exceed 72 hours. These are not, however, recommendations for storage.

The tip cap and plunger stopper of the pre-filled syringe are not made with natural rubber latex.
