Advisory for Users of the CDC Vaccine Code Set regarding Global Trade Identification Numbers (GTIN)

The CDC vaccine code set NDC Lookup Crosswalk and NDC Tables includes a 14-digit GTIN for any NDC Unit of Sale (UoS) or Unit of Use (UoU). The GTIN is included where the CDC has been advised by the manufacturer that their products are 2D barcoded. It has come to our attention that some of the GTINs in this table may not be accurate due to variations in GTIN format by manufacturer. Therefore, we updated the language on the CDC website where the NDC tables are accessible to indicate this disclaimer. We are currently confirming GTINs with each manufacturer and will update users and the CDC website with any changes. As of now, users are advised to use these GTIN values with caution until CDC can verify accuracy with the vaccine manufacturers.

If this change impacts your use of this data, please let us know. Thank you for your patience.

U.S. Launches The AMR Challenge to Combat Growing Threat

U.S. Challenges World to Intensify Global Fight against Antibiotic Resistance

CDC Instagram imageThe U.S. will announce today, during the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York, The AMR Challenge—an ambitious global initiative to combat the growing threat of antibiotic resistance (AR or AMR).

This unprecedented effort, led by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and CDC, charges governments, private industries, and non-governmental organizations from around the world to work together to address antibiotic resistance by:

  • Reducing antibiotics and resistance in the environment (e.g. in water and soil);
  • Improving antibiotic use, including ensuring people can access these medicines when they are needed;
  • Developing new vaccines, drugs, and diagnostic tests;
  • Improving infection prevention and control; and
  • Enhancing data sharing and data collection.

HHS Secretary Alex Azar will announce the challenge tonight at an event co-hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the United Nations Foundation, Wellcome Trust, and the CDC Foundation. Secretary Azar will unveil the first commitments from organizations intent on building on progress against one of the greatest global public health threats.
