Last chance to sign up for WANADAês flu shot program, Aug. 31
Thursday, Aug. 31, marks the deadline for WANADA dealers to register for this yearês flu shot program. With the flu annually infecting over 40 million people, resulting in workplace disruptions averaging four to five work days per employee, the program is a popular, well received WANADA employee benefit.
Once again, the program will be available on-site at WANADA dealerships and administered by Norvar Health Services. The on-site service will be available for adults aged 18 and older.
Norvar is again offering both the trivalent (3-strain) and quadrivalent (4-strain) vaccines. For years, flu vaccines were designed to protect against three different flu viruses (trivalent). The quadrivalent flu vaccine is designed to protect against four different flu viruses. Adding another B virus to the vaccine aims to give broader protection against circulating flu viruses.
The fee is $24 per shot for the trivalent vaccine, and $31 for the quadrivalent vaccine with a minimum of 20 participants required at each location. Locations with less than 20 participants will be billed as if 20 doses of the trivalent vaccine were administered.
As usual, adults 65 and older have a choice of getting the high-dose trivalent flu shot, which offers better protection against the flu compared with the regular trivalent shot. The fee for the high-dose shot will be $48.
To have your dealership participate, register online at www.norvarhealthservices.com, under Scheduling, or call Norvar at 202-744-1360. Please do not fax in your registration. Any request received after Aug. 31 may be subject to vaccine availability.
Norvar Health Services will begin conducting on-site visits starting Oct. 2. All scheduling will be done by Norvar upon submission of your registration. Norvar will contact the dealerês designated representative with the scheduled date/time and forward all appropriate forms. Norvar will invoice the dealership directly for all flu shots administered via the program, subject to the 20 doses minimum. Member questions can be directed to Connie Ryan at WANADA, (202) 237-7200.Download Bulletin PDF
