CPP Rebates are on the Way!

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.

To maximize your annual rebate for the 2017-2018 fiscal period, please make sure you have both your Sanofi Pasteur and Merck direct accounts linked to the CPP program. If you have any questions or need help determining how to get the most value from your CPP membership, please don’t hesitate to contact the CPP office at 614-722-2145 or cpp@nationwidechildrens.org.

Merck Vaccines Price Changes

August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

The National Public Health Information Coalition has created a communications toolkit that you can use in your practice to help promote importance of immunizations.  Use the toolkit to design your own promotions. Mix and match, copy or adapt the contents to fit the particular news and issues of your own organization or community – and share your NIAM activities to inspire others!

CDC Announces New VAERS Reporting Website

From the Immunization Action Coalition: On June 30, CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting (VAERS) website and reporting form that allows people to:
• Easily submit a VAERS report electronically
• Access VAERS data
• Learn more about how CDC and FDA monitor the safety of vaccines

There are now two ways to report an adverse event following vaccination to VAERS:
1. Use the online reporting tool.
2. Complete a paper VAERS form (PDF format) and upload it to the new VAERS website.

By the end of 2017, CDC and FDA will phase out the VAERS paper form and fully transition to the new VAERS 2.0 electronic submission process. Accommodations will be made for persons unable to submit reports electronically. Additional assistance is available via email at info@vaers.org or by phone at (800) 822-7967.
