Automatically purging TERMINATED EC2 instances?

I'm having trouble scheduling vulnerability management scans in EC2 as our servers are dynamically created and terminated. So before performing an EC2 scan I need to manually perform the following actions:


1) purge the terminated instances

2) deploy new VM licenses

3) perform the VM scan


Obviously this is a manual and time consuming process. Is there a way that Qualys VM will purge TERMINATED EC2 instances and deploy the VM licenses automatically to RUNNING EC2 instances?
