Rob Brown

medicine would am question in expect I do Diana. term? expect really how it with you with just though David, or Markets. reevaluate -- you to Lake COVID up morning, Capital them or the sort when of pick that you Street -- long normalizes, unused retail would Is pharmacy good expect activity the Hi, that Gerry. with would is it, My

David Tusa

No.

and they through after normalized pick it'll if up normal. that to expect, pharmacy and we to normalized quite you've retail It's don't but think, levels. they're any I just to know expect back think back busy. of been when But get in this, go should they more levels. be to back us I a we're we going lately, more back -- I don't know get

Rob Brown

then, build at And just inventory the seeing terms customers. Okay. in Great. the of you're

talked out quarter. you strong customers pretty the What's your play at think of calendar activity how the -- the about the inventory is in for kind immunization the sort on for of bill I orders and sense seasonality XXXX?

David Tusa

good So a question. that's

mentioned I $X last limited excess I talking about think knowledge that had mailback million the you're have just we inventory. that -- may upon had, they I thought call, based

Rob Brown

Yeah. Correct. Correct.

David Tusa

burned that two, So, we excessive. to out there's that's but some know and they're off that overly down order still don't I think inventory levels there. continue maybe that been to they five, are

a Diana's fact, orders -- few end quarter. in In received numbers, saw of you we December from the as quite

or changed immunization, COVID there's whether you mailback more be I it's the no flu, fungible, what's use So, kind or can or any is for -- tell flu whatever. it's shingles of

more the we're what future, they're predictable shots the that and lot they or a will like So, appear fact over I see driven whatever is the to or say do I like, think be is quarters. that vaccines foreseeable the whatever orders to the orders going what -- by for smooth I administering,

versus quarters I'd of million $XX have $X the three example, first. million each rather For

evidence orders, immunization saw the did quarter. the million-plus of see we What in we'll $X that. bill four for think I And that. So, plus -- the we

Diana Diaz

$X million-plus for the quarter.

David Tusa

Yeah.

and -- as mentioned well. So then Diana

we So have immunization. far in $X.X for January, in revenues already million

going that that much I be -- inventory predictable vary That's spikes but more out smooth again, do. and things levels. So, to that hope orders I think we the and best significant questions, are your we've seen answer versus the in can

Rob Brown

Yeah. Thank very over. Thank I'll you. turn helpful. That's it you.
