Specifications include, but are not limited to:. Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) has re-issued this request for proposal in order to invite additional proposals from qualified Contractors to provide seasonal flu vaccines (as well as other types of vaccines, if needed, in the future) to all people 6 months of age and older. MCDPH hopes to gain additional Contractors that already have access to the federally funded Vaccines for Children (VFC) program so that we may partner together in order to give our community, and especially our younger generation, increased access to these very important vaccines. In doing so it is our belief that the overall spread of not only the seasonal Influenza virus, but also the COVID-19 virus, shall be decreased. At a time when even a “mild” seasonal influenza outbreak can bring about increased hospitalizations and amplified demands for medical care among our urgent care facilities, primary care centers, and other medical facilities due to the complications that sometimes occur with the flu, any opportunities to mitigate and/or decrease these events often result in ripple effects that can contribute to the overall success of response efforts.
