Upcoming flu season


The flu season is a topic that arises annually and inspires many individuals to take preventative measures. Washing hands more frequently, opting to receive a flu vaccine, staying home when sick and purchasing supplies may reduce the risk of contracting the virus.


As we enter a flu season in the midst of a pandemic, it will be imperative that organizations take the same precautionary measures to protect staff and customers alike to the best of their ability. A simple way to prepare your medical facility for the flu season will be to have the proper safety and medical supplies in stock to help combat the virus and limit risk.


The flu season generally occurs during the fall and winter seasons; however, influenza viruses circulate year-round. Due to the surge in activity in the fall and winter most people interested in receiving a flu shot will plan to do so towards the end of summer or early fall in preparation. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “recommends getting a flu vaccination in September or October but getting vaccinated anytime during the flu season can help protect you.”


With the increased interest in flu shot vaccinations due to heighted health vulnerability, it is important that clinics and medical facilities begin preparation for flu shot administration, treatment, and sanitation measures as soon as possible.

  • Automate frequent purchases: For items you use often, activate Recurring Delivery for business. Out of facial tissues every month? No problem. Just set recurring delivery on your preferred product to avoid stockouts and eliminate the hassle of reordering.
  • Track your inventory: Closely tracking inventory levels is an essential step in operating a safe and reliable medical facility. You want to buy the right quantity at the right time to ensure you have what you need on hand; however, you want to avoid excess product that can result in storage constraints.
  • Cost: Look for transparency when it comes to pricing and compare prices with those offered from other vendors. Select suppliers who offer a variety of discounts for high-volume orders and no order minimums.
  • Consolidate purchasing: The more you can get from one supplier, the less time you’ll have to spend managing purchasing. While being tied to a few suppliers can simplify the purchasing process, traditional suppliers may lock you into long-term contracts that limit your ability to negotiate prices.
