Q.

Infanrix Hexa and Varilrix availability

Dear Doctor

My son is 12 months. I went to the clinic today for the infanrix hexa and varilrix vaccines, only to be told that there is no stock globally! Is this true? The clinic could not tell me when stock will be arriving.

I am worried as to what effect this will have on my baby' s immunity, it I don' t manage to find stock somewhere soon.

Are you able to shed any light on this issue?

Thank you very much.
