Vaccine Purchasing Program

Merck & Co, Inc. provides The Vaccine Brand Choice discount program to The Physician Alliance members.*  The Vaccine Brand Choice program can help you meet your business needs with flexible ordering, on-invoice discount opportunities, and convenient purchasing options.

  • Flexible ordering allows you to purchase only the quantity and selection of vaccines you need, based on the demands of your practice.
  • On-invoice discounts are immediate, so there’s no waiting for rebates.

Opportunities to maximize your savings – The Vaccine Brand Choice program provides simple pricing on Merck vaccines.

  • There are different levels of discounts, depending on your purchase of certain qualifying vaccines (please contact our Merck representative, Melissa Ottinger at 586-214-5112 for program structure and performance requirements).
  • The Vaccine Brand Choice program also provides you with a predictable Discount Level.  This means the discount level (eg, Discount Level I or Discount Level II) you achieve for a calendar quarter is set at the start of the calendar quarter.  So, you will know your discount level for purchases of product during the entire quarter.
  • Free shipping on orders over $600.
  • An additional 2% prompt payment discount is earned on invoice purchases if paid within 90 days from invoice date.
  • Expired vaccine is eligible for return (with full credit) as long as it is received within 1 year of the product expiration date.

Full service support you deserve so you can order with confidence

  • The Vaccine Brand Choice program offers you personalized attention from your Merck Vaccine representative, Melissa Ottinger and the Merck Vaccine Customer Center.
  • The local Merck account team can also offer additional support for your practice:
    • Process improvement to increase immunization rates
    • Staff education on vaccine storage, handling, administration, vaccine safety and how to communicate recommendations
    • Wide variety of patient education resources
