How does National Discount Vaccine Alliance work?

Upon completion of the agreement, practices are linked to NDVA’s national contracts with sanofi pasteur and Merck.  Vaccine orders are placed directly with the manufacturers, either online or by phone, which in turn ship the products and bill the practice directly. NDVA provides the discounts and the manufacturers supply and sell the vaccine product. As an NDVA member, practices receive favorable pricing, purchasing, and payment terms and can participate in additional manufacturer promotions like sanofi pasteur’s VaxMax program.
