Hello, With the advent of the new Pneumococcal and Rotavirus vaccines packaged in single dose pre-filled glass syringes, we are likely to be facing a complication in waste management. It's my understanding that this is likely to be a transitory trend for many of the new vaccines in the future, which means that infrastructure (programmatic and technological) needs to be thought up and disseminated as part of national and program health care waste management plans. If you have been administering these in your country, would you be so kind as to take a few minutes to briefly share your experiences with safely disposing of Pre-filled Glass Syringes? If you are getting these vaccines soon, but haven't started using them yet, perhaps you could share your basic strategy with this group. If you are a waste management consultant and are already experiencing issues with these, please tell us your stories. Many thanks, Tory Hart Consultant for Health and Environment ##text##
