CPP Partners with AstraZeneca - 3/1/2019
CPP is pleased to announce a new partnership with AstraZeneca that provides our members a discount opportunity on doses of FluMist®, an intranasal influenza vaccine, for the upcoming 2019-2020 flu season. Members who opt into this contract will receive a discount off the list price of doses ordered through an authorized distributor throughout the entire 2019-2020 flu season. Authorized distributors of FluMist currently include McKesson Medical-Surgical Inc. and FFF Enterprises Inc.

To access this discount, please contact the CPP office at cpp@nationwidechildrens.org or 614-722-2145 to obtain pricing details, updated terms and conditions as well as a declaration form. If you participated in the FluMist discount in prior flu seasons under CPP-MedImmune contract, we will still need an updated declaration form to show your acceptance of the new agreement under AstraZeneca.

Members who are interested in pre-booking FluMist doses should place their reservations with an authorized distributor prior to March 31, 2019.
