FFF Enterprises Announces May 3 Launch of MyFluVaccine; Solves Uncertainty of U.S. Flu Vaccine Delivery
May 3, 2006 Media Release
Nation's first program allows flu vaccine providers to place orders, schedule exact delivery dates using company's dynamic online ordering system
TEMECULA, Calif. - FFF Enterprises Inc., the nation's largest distributor of influenza vaccines and human plasma products, announced today an 8 a.m. Pacific Time launch of MyFluVaccine, an extraordinary new program that allows healthcare providers to order flu vaccine for delivery on their specified dates for the upcoming influenza season.
This first-ever program relieves flu vaccine providers of worries over scheduling vaccine clinics, frantic searches for product, and frustrated patients eager for their seasonal flu shots. At MyFluVaccine.com, providers can place flu vaccine orders and secure their orders for delivery on specific dates they select. MyFluVaccine also allows providers to view product availability and access important information about flu prevention and treatment.
"We are truly excited to introduce this revolutionary new program," said Patrick M. Schmidt, FFF's chief executive officer. "MyFluVaccine helps resolve the frustration of past vaccination seasons. All healthcare providers, large and small, now have fair and unprecedented access to the traditionally unpredictable U.S. flu vaccine distribution."
MyFluVaccine bypasses obstacles that previously hampered flu vaccine distribution. Historically, vaccine providers have double-booked vaccine orders with various distributors, requesting the earliest possible delivery, and distributors have overbooked their supplies to assure selling out. This system has created huge uncertainty about true demand. Product has been released and then rushed ineffectively into the marketplace, without insight into how much flu vaccine was actually needed, when and by whom.
The industry's leading flu vaccine distributor, FFF is a multidimensional healthcare corporation, dedicated to Helping Healthcare Care. Consistent with FFF's well-established Guaranteed Channel Integrity™, FFF buys vaccine only from manufacturers and ships only to healthcare providers, protecting the vaccine and patients from the risks of product diversion, counterfeiting and irresponsible pricing.
