Now's a great time to order IAC's top-quality immunization products! Get  a 10 percent discount on all IAC products purchased by September 30!
Private practices, public clinics, corporations, and health departments find IAC's immunization products to be invaluable for vaccine delivery and patient education. Making purchases in August or September is a smart move--to coincide with the start of influenza vaccination season. And for clinics and health departments whose fiscal year ends on September 30, it's a good time to stock up before your fiscal year-end dollars run out. If you can make major or bulk purchases, please do–and receive quantity discounts.

Shop now and save 10 percent until September 30
Get 10 percent off the price of all IAC products when you place one or more orders before the end of September. Just enter the coupon code—IACX2012—in the “Coupon Code” field of the shopping cart and click recalculate. Then click “Check Out” to complete the order. Not using the shopping cart? You can still save 10 percent. Just write IACX2012 on the order form and fax or mail your order to us.

If you're familiar with IAC's top-quality products, you can start shopping by going to the Shop IAC web page now.
