VaxAmerica Enters Partnership with Emeritus Senior Living

Alliance makes influenza vaccines available to seniors nationwide.

(Vocus) June 15, 2009 -- VaxAmerica, a program of FFF Enterprises, Inc., the nation's most trusted distributor of flu vaccines, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Emeritus Senior Living. The alliance will encourage the 26,500 seniors living in Emeritus' communities and 19,000 Emeritus employees to receive annual flu vaccinations. In addition, Emeritus is opening its doors to provide convenient access for local seniors who live near its 309 communities to also receive their seasonal flu vaccine. The partnership is especially timely given the increased flu awareness brought about by the H1N1 (Swine Flu) outbreak.

"Vaccination is always the first line of defense against influenza," says Nancy Creadon, vice president, VaxAmerica. "Through our partnership with Emeritus and our pre-registration process, we will now be able to bring vaccines directly to the people that need them most."

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the seasonal flu claims approximately 36,000 deaths each year, with vaccination especially important for those in the high-risk categories to include children, seniors and those with compromised immune systems. With the increased awareness from the recent H1N1 outbreak, VaxAmerica and Emeritus are preparing for an active fall vaccination season as an important preventive measure.

Launched in 2008, VaxAmerica offers access, choice and cost savings for patients and their healthcare providers. With its just-in-time delivery model, the program eliminates inventory costs and the risks associated with long-term storage for providers. VaxAmerica also offers direct billing, so there are no up-front costs, and healthcare providers receive an administration fee for their service. Referrals from the VaxAmerica network offer an additional benefit to providers.

Flu shots will be given at all Emeritus communities beginning October 1, 2009. For a list of local Emeritus communities where you can receive a flu shot, please visit To ensure you reserve a vaccine, please pre-register with VaxAmerica by calling (888) 444-8522.
