The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) provide guidance on the safe use of vaccines and related biological products, including post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) for potential rabies exposures.

Products with new packaging will be shipped when available, and after distributors' current supplies become depleted. As such, it is likely you may not receive both the new 2mL and 10mL product packaging at the same time.
