Personnel must be aware of the safety procedures in the event of accidental self-injection.
The use of suitable hand and finger protection equipment for vaccinating personnel is mandatory. Sandpaper, carbon or Kevlar reinforcements protecting the fingers, and a protection device attached to the vaccination syringes are recommended as personal protection measures.
In the case of self-injection, a rapid reaction is of the utmost importance, following the instructions in the vaccine’s technical data sheet. The location and phone number of the nearest doctor should be readily available.
