Nation's largest distributor of influenza vaccines prepared to respond to vaccine delays

TEMECULA, Calif., Oct. 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unexpected delays from multiple manufacturers are causing postponements of flu shipments to some healthcare providers who are just beginning their fall vaccination campaigns.

FFF Enterprises has a large supply of flu vaccines that are ready to be shipped from their two state-of-the-art distribution facilities, located in Temecula, CA and Kernersville, NC, to hospitals, physician offices, retail outlets, clinics, worksites and senior centers nationwide.

"The flu impacts hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. every year, and each year FFF strives to ensure that patients will receive their flu vaccinations, from their healthcare provider of choice, in time for protection each season," says Patrick M. Schmidt, FFF's chief executive officer. "Public health preparedness is essential to the well-being of our communities, and ensuring flu vaccines are available and distributed in a timely manner is critical in the overall public health landscape."

FFF is an authorized distributor of all U.S. licensed manufacturers and brands. FFF carries bioCSL, GlaxoSmithKline, MedImmune, Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur. And their respective brands, Afluria, FluLaval, Fluarix, FluMist, Fluvirin and Fluzone.

Also available are cell-based Flucelvax by Novartis and recombinant cell-cultured Flublok by Protein Sciences.
