Customizeable resources to help improve flu literacy in your patient population are now available through Sanofi Pasteur. You can choose between a pediatric version and an adult version, depending on the patients you see in your practice. You can also add your practice logo and contact information so your patients know who to contact with questions or to schedule their flu shot!
For more information or to customize this resource for your practice, contact your local Sanofi Pasteur representative or the CPP Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CPP rebates for rebate-eligible CPP members will be coming by mail starting in October! Your rebate is based on vaccine purchases made between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

Vaccines are expensive so having a plan to consult when an emergency presents itself is essential.
*Review your plan to update it and maintain familiarity with the plan.
*All staff should know how to find the emergency plan.
*At least 2 practice leaders should organize the emergency response and completely understand the steps of the emergency plan.
*It should be clear where the vaccine will go in case storage units are no longer operational.
*Transport storage units should be kept in a easy to find place, preferably close to the vaccine refrigerators.
*Make sure to consult the vaccine manufacturers and your VFC representative during and after the process.

Please contact the CPP office at firstname.lastname@example.org for updated pricing sheets that reflect these changes. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your Merck representatives or call the CPP office at 614-722-2145 (toll free 877-277-9330).
We have heard from several CPP members that some insurance companies are requiring NDC numbers to be listed alongside the appropriate vaccine CPT code. Sanofi Pasteur has created a proper coding guide with NDC numbers for all of their vaccines to help member practices.
