Providing the best care possible for your patients should be the top priority of any medical practice or care facility. To do that, you need the right access to supplies and treatments, and that means finding the right providers and distributors. But how do you find the right flu vaccine distributor to keep your medical practice stocked up on necessary vaccines? Use these tips to find a flu vaccine distributor that's right for you.

Consider The Brand

If you have a particular brand preference when stocking up on your flu vaccines, you'll want to keep that in mind when looking for a new distributor. Not all flu vaccine distributors carry the same brands. Whether you prefer Seqirus flu vaccines, Flublok vaccines, or other brands, you'll want to ensure that your flu vaccine distributor carries your preferred brand before you start getting your flu vaccines from them.

Know Your Patient Demographic

Some populations and demographics will require specialized vaccines in order to receive their regular flu vaccinations. Immunization prevents between two and three million deaths per year, according to the World Health Organization, and ensuring everyone is up to date on their vaccines can save lives. However, in order to properly vaccinate some age ranges, your distributor will need to be able to supply you with vaccines that have a specific formulation for elders or especially young children. Check with your distributor to make sure you can get flu vaccines for all of your patients in one place.

Special Circumstances

In some circumstances, you'll need to order specific types of vaccines beyond specific brands or concentrations. For example, if your practice requires you to have thimerosal-free or preservative-free vaccines, you'll want to find a flu vaccine distributor that's able to provide those. When first contacting your distributor, ask about your specific needs to see if your distributor can meet them.

Finding the right flu vaccine distributor for your medical practice can keep your practice well-stocked with all the pre-filled flu vaccine syringes you need to keep your patients safe and healthy.
