German term or phrase: Kurzläufern
I am clear that the term refers to medicines/vaccines that are very close to their expiry date. My question is whether there is a specific term in English for these "Kurzläufer"?

Text from document: "Kurzläufer sind Impfstoffe, die mit einer sehr kurzen Restlaufzeit ausgeliefert werden."

Thanks

Explanation:
The vaccine coordinator should arrange the vaccine and diluent supplies according to the expiration dates on a weekly basis and each time a vaccine shipment arrives. The vials and boxes with the earliest expiration dates should be placed in front of other vials and boxes of the same type with later expiration dates. This practice avoids waste by ensuring that *short-dated vaccine* and diluent are easily accessible and will be used first, thereby limiting the amount of unused vaccine that has passed its expiration date.

A VaxiPacTM is the only approved method for transporting Varicella that does not short date the product.
