I received a question regarding the mapping of NDC code 49281054515. The CDC has an NDC crosswalk file to crosswalk between the NDC codes that providers buy vs. the NDC on the individual vaccine (i.e. the unit that is used) - you can either use online or download the tables
I have attached some screen prints for ActHIB and Pentacel from the online lookup – the screen print for ActHIB shows the column names since it is at the top – the screen print for Pentacel uses the same column names but you can’t see them (the first column is the NDC for sale and the 8th column is the NDC for use)
The mapping for ActHIB is okay but for Pentacel, the NDC code 49281054515 is listed as ActHIB in OMOP Vocabulary (I have circled this NDC in the screen print word document) – this NDC is listed as Pentacel.
Is this an incorrect mapping or is there a reason that the NDC code is mapping to ActHIB?
