While the initial consultation proposed listing with Special Authority for Subsidy, the final decision is to list the product fully funded without restrictions.

This will ensure continuous supply of an oral liquid containing vitamin D.

PHARMAC is aware that the discontinuation of Vitadol C (delisting 1 August 2019) would result in there being no funded oral liquid presentation that contains vitamin A.

Separate to this proposal PHARMAC Is considering its option to secure a supply of vitamin A – only oral liquid.

We thank you in anticipation of your ongoing support.
