Click here for a flowchart to help you determine if vaccine is expired, spoiled, or wasted.
- Expired VFC/VFAAR vaccine is product that exceeds the listed expiration date.
- Spoiled VFC/VFAAR vaccine is product that has been exposed to out-of-range temperatures, and is no longer viable.
- Wasted VFC/VFAAR vaccine is product that is in a broken vial/syringe, was drawn from a vial but never used, or product in an open vial that was never finished.
Report expired, spoiled, and wasted vaccine within 30 days after it expires, spoils, or is wasted. After reporting the expired/spoiled vaccine, clearly mark it, wait for a shipping label, then ship the vaccine back to McKesson. Do NOT discard expired and spoiled vaccine. It must be returned. You may discard wasted vaccine.
