WANADA flu shot program is back Register by August 31

Registration is now open for WANADA seasonal flu shot program for dealership employees. With the flu annually infecting over 40 million people, resulting in workplace disruptions four to five work days per employee, this is a popular WANADA employee benefit.

WANADA flu shot 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, experts had to choose just one B virus for the trivalent vaccine, even though there are two very different types of B viruses that circulate during most seasons. The quadrivalent flu vaccine is designed to protect against four different flu viruses: two A viruses and two B viruses. Adding another B virus to the vaccine aims to give broader protection against circulating flu viruses.

The fee will be $24 per shot for the trivalent vaccine and $31 for the quadrivalent, with a minimum of 20 participants required at each location. Locations with fewer than 20 participants will be billed as if 20 doses of the trivalent vaccine were administered.

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. Human immune defenses become weaker with age, which places older people at greater risk of severe illness from influenza. Also, aging decreases the ability of the body to have a good immune response after getting influenza vaccine.

To have your dealership participate, please register online at www.norvarhealthservices.com, under –Scheduling.” Do not fax in your registration. Alternatively, you may call Norvar at 202-744-1360. We encourage dealerships to register early to guarantee their preferred date. Any request received after Aug. 31, the registration deadline, may be subject to vaccine availability.

Norvar Health Services will begin conducting on-site visits starting October 2. All scheduling will be done by Norvar upon submission of 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.

If you have questions, please contact Connie Ryan at WANADA at (202) 237-7200.
