Scottsdale, AZ – As the peak of the 2012-2013 flu season draws near, Appointment-
Plus medical scheduling software is making the vaccination process smoother for healthcare facilities, clinic, pharmacies and companies nationwide by enabling patients, customers and employees to quickly book their vaccination appointments online, 24 hours a day.
The result is a more efficient process that dramatically decreases or eliminates long lines and wait times, frees up staff resources for more pressing tasks, and helps facilities manage their supply of vaccinations.
“Administering flu shots can be a tedious and time-consuming task, especially for facilities that still take appointments over the phone or allow walk-ins,” says Bob La Loggia, CEO of Appointment-
Plus. “Scheduling flu-shot appointments in the traditional manner is inconvenient for both staff and the individuals they’re scheduling, which is why Appointment-
Plus has become the booking solution of choice for facilities nationwide and throughout the world.”

) is the perfect solution for automating and streamlining procedures for managing flu shot vaccinations.
