Story from the Field


Name of Health Department/Agency: Orange County Medical Reserve Corps
State: CA
Date Added: 12/21/2009
Themes: Vaccine Supply and Distribution
Issue Summary: National and Regional Pharmacy Chain Participation in H1N1 Vaccine Campaign in CA
Description of Issue(s): The small and large pharmacy chains ordered vaccine from the manufacturer directly.
Actions taken to address the issue(s): They have been getting their orders filled to an extent. But with supply increasing, their orders should be filled quicker.
Outcomes that resulted from actions taken: We don't want to have local health departments involved in distributing to pharmacies. That would be way too much to do.
