Subject: Review of Proposed Container and Package Labeling

Product:  Hiberix (Haemophilus b Conjugate Vaccine (Tetanus Toxoid Conjugate)]
 

                 Sponsor: Glaxo SmithKline


The Advertising and Promotional Labeling Branch (APLB) reviewed the proposed container and package labeling submitted on March 17, 2009 with the BLA for Hiberix [Haemophilus b Conjugate Vaccine (Tetanus Toxoid Conjugate)].  Please ensure that the final packaging for Hiberix is distinct from Havrix and the other Haemophilus vaccines to avoid confusion and medication errors.
