Seasonal Flu Vaccine Offers 2019-20
The LMC Buying Group has made the decision to work with all four remaining flu vaccine companies for the 2019/20 season to ensure they are in a position to help members no matter which supplier you decide to use next year. GSK and Pfizer will not be producing flu vaccines for the UK market for 2019/20 which leaves MASTA, Mylan, Sanofi and Seqirus.
The Buying Group has negotiated discounts on all vaccines that are currently available to order as well as other terms such as sale or return, reserves, early delivery etc. We know that there have been concerns over having a sole supplier for vaccines for patients aged 65 and over and at this point in the season this is still the case.
