Store unopened and opened vials at 2-8 °C. All vaccines must be discarded after the expiration date.

Five-dose vial: After first opening of the multi-dose vial, immediate use is recommended. If not used immediately, the vaccine should be stored in a refrigerator (2°C - 8°C). If not used within 48 hours, it should be discarded.
