COVID-19 Ancillary Kit Update

COVID-19 Ancillary Kit Update

All Moderna COVID-19 vaccine shipments will now include only one ancillary kit: one ancillary kit to one carton of vaccine, instead of two ancillary kits to one carton of vaccine. This change will take effect with orders placed beginning on Monday, April 11, 2022, at 10 am ET.

Providers are able to opt-out of future ancillary kit shipments (with the exception of Pfizer 5-11, as it requires diluent). In order to do so, please place a note in the comment section of your order if you are interested in opting out of Moderna, Janssen, and Gray Cap Pfizer supplies.

Although many providers are reporting an excess of ancillary supplies, PDPH is unable to accept any ancillary kits/supplies back from providers. Ancillary supplies can be donated domestically (not internationally) if sites are unable to use them. However, surplus CDC cards should be properly destroyed to avoid any misuse. If disposing of any needles, providers should utilize the appropriate sharps bins.
