Influenza Vaccines 100% Returnable Now Thru End of Season
January 5, 2018
In an effort to help our customers continue to care for their patients, we are offering a no-risk 100% returnability solution going forward this season. You will receive 100% returnability on your 2017-18 flu vaccine orders for purchases made between now and the end of the season, while supplies last.
The 2017-18 flu season has officially arrived. According to a California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Clinical Advisory report, "in California and throughout the United States (U.S.), influenza activity has increased significantly over recent weeks with influenza A(H3N2) viruses predominating so far this season." And, although we are seeing very high levels of flu activity now, it's not too late to vaccinate since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends continued vaccination efforts since peak flu activity in the U.S. usually occurs around February.
The report goes on to explain that, thus far, most influenza specimens have been classified as A(H3N2), which in the past have been the virus-predominant influenza seasons associated with "more hospitalizations and deaths in persons aged 65 years and older and young children." CDPH says that "all influenza viruses ...that have been antigenically characterized have matched the strains included in the vaccine for this season."
A picture paints a thousand words--just look at the differences between the 2016-17 and 2017-18 flu activity maps from December 2016 and December 2017. National flu reporting goes from mostly local across the nation in 2016, to widespread in 2017.
This flu season continues to be extremely aggressive. Be prepared to protect your patients and order your 2017-18 flu vaccines today.
