DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atlantic Health Partners, the nation’s premier buying group for physicians, health systems, physician organizations, and medical practices, today announced the addition of Prevnar 13® to its vaccine program. Beginning January 1, 2021, Atlantic Health Partners’ members will have access to Pfizer’s pneumococcal 13-valent conjugate vaccine that protects against 13 strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae.
The Prevnar 13® vaccine, which aids in protecting against invasive pneumococcal disease, is recommended by the CDC to be administered to infants as a four-dose series at two, four, six, and 12 to 15 months of age. Adding Prevnar 13® to Atlantic Health Partners’ comprehensive vaccine program enables access to this important vaccine at a discounted rate and provides members with access to both of Pfizer’s major vaccines—Trumenba® and Prevnar 13®. Program enrollment is now open, and current Atlantic Health Partners members can opt in for the Prevnar vaccine immediately.
“Adapting to the evolving needs of our members and their patients has always been our top priority,” said Jeff Winokur, President of Atlantic Health Partners. “By adding Prevnar 13® to our vaccine program, we’ve expanded the range of vaccines our members can access, so they can truly build a custom vaccine program that meets the needs of their patients.”
