Vaccines National Drug Codes Unit Of Sale

$179 / year

The Vaccines National Drug Codes Unit Of Use database facilitate the use of NDC to identify vaccines.
The purpose of the NDC unit of sale dataset is to show the relationships of vaccine secondary packaging NDCs and provide related information for use as reference data for solutions that leverage NDCs.


NDCs are assigned by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and serve as universal product identifiers for human drugs. These codes indicate the product (FDA Product Code), the manufacturer or packager (FDA Labeler Code), and the packaging (e.g. 5 dose vial).
The format of these codes varies within each component (4-4-2, 5-3-2, or 5-4-1). The combinations of these components have 10 numbers.
In many uses, these 3 components are normalized to a consistent pattern (5-4-2) with dashes between components. A component is left-padded with zero (0) to adjust the size. These more familiar codes are labeled NDC11 in these pages.

In most cases, there are separate NDCs for the Unit of Use (primary) and Unit of Sale (secondary) packaging of a vaccine. That is, the syringe that contains the vaccine has one NDC and the carton of 10 syringes has a different NDC.
Secondary package: The container or packaging that holds the primary packaging. For example, a carton of 5 syringes. This is generally referred to as Unit of Sale or a saleable unit.
Some vaccines (primary package) contain multiple components (e.g. lyophilized agent and diluent agent). The individual components of a multi-component vaccine are each assigned a unique NDC. The NDCs of the individual components differ from the NDC of the secondary packaging.
Each of these component packages (unit of use) will be linked to the unit of sale package.
