Dosage

2.2 Administration

Hold the prefilled syringe horizontally and shake vigorously immediately prior to use to obtain an opalescent suspension. Do not use the vaccine if it cannot be resuspended. Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. Do not use if particulate matter or discoloration is observed.
