Explanation

BACKGROUND: Each flu season, the Immunizations Program at Columbus Public Health offers flu shots to the residents of Columbus and Franklin County. To ensure having the vaccines that are needed for the upcoming flu season, pre-booking through the manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, is the most reliable method of ordering those vaccines. Pre-booking also guarantees on-time delivery and 340B Program pricing. Therefore, competitive bidding is being waived in order to secure our reservation to purchase the vaccine. This ordinance authorizes the Director of Finance and Management to establish a purchase order with Sanofi Pasteur in the amount of $66,682.68 for the purchase of Fluzone Influenza Virus vaccines.

Due to the potential health and safety risk of the upcoming flu season, and in order to ensure availability of flu vaccine, emergency action is hereby requested. Sanofi Pasteur’s contract compliance number is 980033013.

FISCAL IMPACT: Monies for this purchase order were budgeted in the Health Special Revenue Fund for fiscal year 2019.
