Takeaways From The 2016 Flu Market Brief:

The 2016 HIDA Influenza Vaccine Production & Distribution Market Brief provides new insights into the flu products supply chain and key information from the sixth annual “HIDA Flu Products Survey” of distributors conducted in May 2016. The survey demonstrates the essential role that distributors will serve during the 2016-2017 flu season by helping healthcare facilities and patients access vaccines, hypodermic supplies, diagnostic tests, and more. 

The 2015-2016 influenza season occurred from October 4, 2015 - May 21, 2016. Flu activity was lower and peaked later compared to previous seasons, ultimately peaking in mid-March. Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses predominated overall, but influenza A(H3N2) viruses were common through December, while influenza B viruses were more commonly identified from mid-April through mid-May. The healthcare supply chain demonstrated flexibility and efficiency through 24-48 hour delivery and logistical expertise to ensure healthcare providers  were well-supplied throughout the flu season.

Additionally, the 2016 HIDA Influenza Vaccine Production & Distribution Market Brief provides key information on:

- Flu vaccine production, supply, and allocation
- Patient and physician vaccination trends
- Managing influenza with diagnostic resources
- Manufacturing and distribution processes
- 2016 Medicare reimbursements
- Quality reporting measures related to influenza vaccination
- Vaccine effectiveness trends.
