Walgreens to Begin Supplying Influenza Vaccine to AAFP Members in Five States
Pilot Program Aims to Expand Immunization Rates
By Matt Brown
The company says the pilot offers family medicine practices same-day vaccine availability, the ability to order quantities as small as a single vial (10-dose pack) and "competitive pricing."
According to Tim Brne, R.Ph., director of immunization services for Walgreens, family physician offices can purchase the desired quantity of vaccine at their local Walgreens pharmacy and pick it up immediately.
There is no obligation for AAFP members to use the service, and there is no long-term commitment if they choose to do so.
Academy members in the selected states can e-mail for more information or to order.
Brne said that if the program "sees a good response" from AAFP members, it likely will roll out to other states in the future.
