First published Friday, August 5, 2016
The University awarded a contract for Fluarix Quadrivalent flu vaccine.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
The University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System (UIHHSS) on behalf of its Ambulatory Care Pharmacy require the purchase of various flu vaccine products (Fluarix Quadrivalent, Tri-valent, High Dose, Pediatric Doses and Cell-based) for the health and well-being of patients, students, staff and faculty. There are a few Flu Vaccine manufacturers, however based on past procurement history, it is best practice to pre-book vaccines with more than one vendors to avoid potential shortages due to production issues. For this reason, Ambulatory Care Pharmacy pre-booked Flu vaccines with GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi Pasteur in the Summer for the Flu Season (August 2016 through January 2017) based on previous season's utilization.

GlaxoSmithKline is the predominant vendor because this manufacturer has more production lines making it the most reliable source and offers a lower priced quadrivalent (4strain) vaccine. Sanofi Pasteur provides high-dose vaccines for patients over 65years old and pediatric doses. Novartis product has trace thimerosal which should be avoided in patients under 4 years and pregnant women and therefore was not ordered.

There is an emergency need for the 2016/17 flu season as the first lot orders will be shipped next week.
