2022 Influenza season Updates

Please read below for information regarding your favourite Influenza brands and the 2022 Influenza Season.

Why Pre-Order for the 2022 Influenza Season

Team anticipates increased demand in 2022, so don’t delay reserving your stock. Shortages in the market are highly likely next year for a number of reasons. COVID-19 had a large impact on the 2021 Influenza Season, we expect this pandemic will also affect the 2022 Influenza Season. Manufacturing space for vaccines is limited and global demand for COVID-19 vaccinations has impacted availability of manufacturing space. For this reason we anticipate that buffer inventory (contingency stock) will not be available in 2022. Global manufacturers are expected to only provide stock for pre-season orders. Low influenza cases combined with low Vaccination Coverage Rates (VCR) this year, creates the potential for lower-than-typical herd immunity. This could result in increased cases of influenza in 2022; especially with the anticipated opening of international borders. As always, to commence production for the 2022 Influenza Season, manufacturers require their volumes early in Quarter 4.
