Drug shortage: Calcitonin 200 units/ mL X 2 mL injectable


The issue: Calcitonin 200 units/mL X 2 mL injectable is on backorder from the only manufacturer in Canada. Some NH supply will also be expiring on October 31st, 2022, resulting in stock levels of approximately 3 to 4 weeks remaining. Without conservation measures, there is potential for a supply gap of a few weeks leading up to the estimated resupply date. 

Estimated resolution: December 2022
