Order Processing Updates:
There are currently no delays in the processing of VFC vaccine requests. Received requests are promptly reviewed, approved and processed by VFC’s Customer Service Center.
Although vaccines may sometimes arrive within a few days of submitting your request, we ask that you place your vaccine request with sufficient doses on hand to allow up to 3 weeks for the receipt of your vaccine shipment. In the event that your shipment takes the full 3 weeks to arrive, you will not run out of inventory while you wait for your shipment.
Regular Vaccine Requests:
All pending vaccine requests received as of Friday, June 26, 2015, have been processed and submitted to VFC’s National vaccine distributor. Providers should expect to receive vaccine shipments no later than July 17, 2015. Varicella vaccine requests will be shipped directly to your practice by the vaccine manufacturer, Merck, within the same time frame.
Current Vaccine Supply Information:
Currently, there are no delays or supply issues with VFC-supplied vaccine.
VFC’s on-line vaccine ordering system, MYVFCVaccines, is a fast way to submit your order to VFC! It provides an instant order confirmation via e-mail upon order submission. Once an order is processed and submitted to VFC’s national vaccine distributor, McKesson Specialty, it sends another e-mail alerting clinic staff of the pending shipment.
