McKesson Update Regarding Glove Price Increases and Availability (December 2020)


CCPA Purchasing Partners and McKesson would like to provide the latest update as it relates to the recent glove price increases and personal protective equipment (PPE) availability.  

While McKesson continues to find new sources for stocking critical PPE, the unprecedented global demand as well as manufacturing constraints for nitrile and vinyl gloves have led to significant cost increases. In response to these factors, McKesson is taking the following actions:

• Continuing to manage allocations on all glove products in order to maintain supply
• Effective January 4, 2021, we will be increasing pricing on nitrile exam gloves

Please review the Customer Letter provided by McKesson as well as the Product Availability Update. For additional information on supply, availability, and additional resources please visit McKesson’s COVID-19 website. For information on the extending the life of PPE, please visit the Centers for Disease Control’s website.
