Cardinal Health is an essential link in the pharmaceutical supply chain and our scale, breadth and expertise make us a critical partner to help the country move on from this virus. We are fully engaged with all stakeholders, including our customers, suppliers, employees and local, state and federal government partners, to work together to build a distribution process that will ensure maximum success for the American people and our country.
The distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine is exceedingly complex and unprecedented in the nation’s history of pharmaceutical delivery. It will require hundreds of millions of highly sensitive vaccine doses to very quickly and accurately get where and to whom they need to go. A successful approach will demand that we use every tool and all capacity available in our country’s well-developed and efficient pharmaceutical distribution supply chain.
We strongly believe utilizing the full capacity of the pharmaceutical supply chain to create a layered distribution network provides the most secure, safe and scalable solution to deploy the COVID-19 vaccine across the United States.
We are engaging with our customers and partners on how to make the dissemination of the COVID-19 vaccine the most effective it can be.
