Whether you are launching a flu vaccine practice or are an experienced flu vaccine administrator, we are here to help you improve the performance of your program from start to finish.

Seasonal influenza vaccine sourcing and pricing process

Our flu vaccine sourcing process is supported by long-standing relationships with major drug manufacturers. These same relationships allow us to sell and distribute the flu vaccines at competitive prices, minimizing your drug spend and maximizing your revenue opportunities during an active flu season.

Committed independent retail pharmacies, community health clinics and independent physician practices may be eligible for our special flu vaccine discount pricing and delivery programs.

Our influenza vaccine distribution program offers tools and resources to help you manage your immunization initiative. Our dedicated team is available to assist you at any time. And during peak flu vaccine season, from August through November, a team of customer service representatives is standing by on our dedicated Flu Line to answer any questions you may have.

Flu vaccine ordering and delivery options

We reserve your flu vaccine order at one of our conveniently located drug distribution centers. You may choose to receive your products with your next regular delivery of pharmaceutical supplies; no minimum flu vaccine orders are required.

Need to adjust your flu vaccine order? We offer an order modification program with the following features:

  • With our pre-ordering process, we give early-bird priority to pharmacy customers that order flu vaccine products in January through March.
  • Modify or cancel your order until May 30.
  • After June 1, we allow up to 15 percent order release until December 31 on each order of 10 or more flu vaccine units.

Our flexible delivery options include auto-shipping and orders as needed:

Auto-ship: With our auto-ship option, your products are shipped as soon as they arrive in our drug distribution center.

Order as Needed: When you choose our order-as-needed option, your products are held at the local drug distribution center, enabling you to place orders as you need them throughout the flu season. This option reduces your onsite inventory costs.
