Emergency Syringes on Allocation
Pfizer continues to face supply challenges with its Hospira injectables line, particularly on its emergency syringes lines. Pfizer’s supply chain challenges continue to put pressure on other suppliers that manufacture similar medications, causing nationwide backorders on these critical products. IMS is experiencing back orders on its emergency syringe line. Both suppliers have placed McKesson Medical-Surgical on allocation. Please consider shifting orders to vial substitutes.
