CPP understands that changes to vaccine pricing can be a challenge for member practices to navigate. Therefore, CPP has put together several tools to help you manage through the process, from the time you receive the new price notification through 90 days post-implementation.
Sanofi Pasteur and Merck recently announced updated catalog pricing on many of their vaccines. Please note that due to CPP’s contract negotiations with these vendors, CPP members can continue to purchase vaccines at the pre-increase price until the following:
Sanofi Pasteur: 1/1/2019 implementation date
Merck: 2/13/2019 implementation date
Also effective 1/1/2019, Sanofi Pasteur is eliminating the $25 service fee currently assessed on non-influenza vaccine shipments less than $600. The policy change is a direct result of our strong partnership with Sanofi Pasteur and feedback from you. They’ve made this change to better meet your needs.
For updated member pricing sheets, please contact the CPP office.
As flu vaccine doses are starting to ship out to providers, please be aware of two new resources available for Fluzone customers:
- Updated Fluzone Coding Guide
- Fluzone High-Dose Xpress – expedient ordering and delivery option for the high-dose Fluzone presentation
For any questions, please contact your Sanofi Pasteur Vaccine Specialist.
Come stop by the CPP Buying Group booth (# 425) in the exhibit hall during the conference!
CPP will also be sponsoring the Independent/Solo Small Practice Member Interest Group meeting on Friday, September 23 from 12:30PM-2:30PM. We will be sharing information and resources related to vaccine management with all of the attendees!
We are excited to announce a new partnership between CPP and Pfizer that will provide CPP members an opportunity to save on purchases of Trumenba®, a meningococcal group B vaccine! In order to receive the CPP discount, doses must be purchased directly from Pfizer using your Pfizer account.

Sanofi Pasteur has announced a pricing promotion on Menactra®! CPP members will receive an additional 3% discount on orders of Menactra® placed before June 24th and shipped by June 28th.
In addition, the CPP contracted price for Adacel® has DECREASED 4% effective June 10, 2016. For updated pricing sheets on all Sanofi Pasteur vaccines, please contact the CPP office.
CPP would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous 2016!
We wanted to make you aware of several updates regarding Sanofi Pasteur vaccines:
Customer End-of-Year Promotion – CPP Members will receive an additional 3% discount off of Menactra® and Adacel® doses ordered between now and Wednesday, December 16, 2015. Orders must ship by Thursday, December 17, 2015.
Pentacel® Supply – Sanofi Pasteur is experiencing a manufacturing delay with Pentacel® and anticipates it will not be able to meet full demand throughout the first half of 2016. In an effort to manage through this period, they are implementing customer level allocations – about 65%-85% of your monthly demand. To help offset the gap in Pentacel® vaccine supply, Daptacel®, ActHIB®, and IPOL® will be be available at 125% of demand so that you have single-entity vaccines available to cover any pentacel shortage and maintain your immunization schedule.
CPP recommends members consider purchasing the entire allocated amount of Pentacel® for your practice each month in order to maintain your level of allocation throughout the entire period of constrained supply.
Price Increases – Sanofi Pasteur has announced price increases to many of their vaccines.
- The new pricing for Adacel®, Diphtheria and Tetanus, Tenivac®, Tubersol®, Imogam® Rabies HT, Typhim Vi® and YF-Vax® will go into effect January 1, 2016.
- Due to the supply issue mentioned above, the new pricing for Pentacel®, Daptacel®, IPOL®, and ActHIB® will be delayed and will go into effect July 1, 2016.
If you have any questions, please contact your Sanofi Pasteur representative or the CPP office at 614-722-2145.
CPP will be exhibiting at the American Academy of Pediatrics NCE this week in Washington D.C. Stop by the Nationwide Children’s Hospital booth (#1413) for some vaccine management and coding resources from CPP!
