Make sure you have supply of the correct needles and syringes to administer the COVID-19 vaccine.
Needle gauge and length recommendations vary based on age, gender, and weight. Use CDC’s Vaccine Administration: Needle Gauge and Length job aid to help you determine the appropriate gauge and length. A discussion of vaccine administration best practices can be found in the Vaccine Administration chapter of the Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases (Pink Book).
The FDA recently amended the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine EUA to allow low dead-volume syringes and/or needles as an option. The added benefit is you may be able to extract a 6th dose from a single 5-dose-vial if using low dead-volume syringes and/or needles. Of course, standard syringes and needles are allowed.
