CPP Program - Key Updates
Sanofi Updated Vaccine Pricing
Recently, our vaccine manufacturer partner Sanofi communicated some changes to their catalog pricing. For CPP members, the new pricing goes into effect on January 1, 2023. Please also keep in mind how Sanofi’s Holiday Shipping Schedule could impact your end of the year ordering. 

For updated pricing sheets, please contact the CPP office.

Don’t forget to access CPP’s price increase tools to help you manage through vaccine price increases. These include a budget impact worksheet, payer mix analysis and contact information for reimbursement support services available through the vaccine manufacturers.  
Vaccine Updates
Merck’s Vaxneuvance

As you likely know, Merck has launched a new pneumococcal vaccine, Vaxneuvance (PCV15), that is FDA approved and ACIP recommended for both children and adults. CPP members now have a choice between Prevnar 13 (Pfizer) or Vaxneuvance (Merck) for pediatric patients (2, 4, 6 and 12-15 months) and a choice between Prevnar 20 (Pfizer) or Vaxneuvance + Pneumovax 23 (Merck) for adult patients (65+).  

We have been told that most private payers are paying for this new CPT code (90671) and most state VFC programs added Vaxneuvance. We recommend reaching out to your major payers and your state’s VFC program to verify for your practice.
Valuable Resources
Measles Outbreak
Due to the growing number of measles cases in the United States so far in 2022, pediatric providers are fielding questions from patient families about the safety and efficacy of the MMR vaccine.  According to the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention a record high of nearly 40 million children missed a measles vaccine dose in 2021.

CPP members can access a variety of resources and materials from the CDC to help with parent conversations and stay up to date on the status of the current measles outbreak.
