Fluzone Intradermal Vaccine Available Free for Family Physicians
By Matt Brown
Sanofi says it prefers minimum orders of 10 intradermal units (100 doses) and will ship the vaccine to physician offices.
Although there is a large quantity available, supplies likely will go quickly so AAFP members needing vaccine should place an order as soon as possible. Physicians will also receive a training video on administering the vaccine with their order.
All orders should be e-mailed to Mary Kate Reeves-Hoche with "Fluzone ID vaccine request" included in the subject line. Sanofi also is asking physicians to include a
- date of request;
- Sanofi Pasteur customer number (if applicable);
- name and address;
- contact name and phone;
- number of intradermal units requested (1 unit = 10 doses); and
- number of intradermal doses requested.
The AAFP, in conjunction with the CDC, recommends that family physicians begin immunizing patients before the onset of influenza activity in the community and continue offering vaccinations throughout the influenza season.
