Distributors provide flu vaccines, rapid diagnostics tests, hypodermic supplies and other critical medical products to healthcare settings across the U.S. HIDA works with Congress, industry partners, federal and state agencies to continually improve the flu vaccine supply chain.

What Members Need to Know

HIDA leads the HIDA Flu Initiative that partners with national organizations such as the American Medical Association (AMA) and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, in order to educate stakeholders on the role of distribution during the flu season.
