Funds left in your 9/30 year-end budget?  Consider ordering valuable immunization tools

Employee health clinics, private practices, public clinics, pharmacies, hospitals, and health departments find IAC's immunization products to be valuable for staff training and effective patient education. Making purchases in September is a smart move—to coincide with the start of influenza vaccination season. If your fiscal year ends on September 30 and you have extra dollars to spend, this is a good way to help your organization and IAC. If you can make major or bulk purchases, please do—and receive quantity discounts.

DVD TO TRAIN STAFF—IMMUNIZATION TECHNIQUES: BEST PRACTICES WITH INFANTS, CHILDREN, AND ADULTS
