Influenza & Other Vaccine Information

As  we move in to the respiratory  season, we thought it might be helpful to provide information on influenza and pneumococcal immunizations.

Below is the link to the CDC Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) site. The following statements are included on the site.  http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/index.html

Both influenza VISs – IIV and LAIV – have been updated for the 2015-16 flu season, and may be used immediately. 

 Important note:  These flu VISs, for the first time, are designed NOT to be specific to a single flu season.  In other words, they may be used next year, and in future years, unless there are significant changes to influenza vaccine recommendations that would require them to change.

Attached are the following posters/signs.

  1. Current CDC Poster-  “Take 3” Actions
  2. Examples of Flu Shot Reminders

If you would like laminated copies of any of the signs to post in your office, please contact Jane Berke at jberke@highlandsphysician.com or at 423.392.1920.

Please Note:  The updated VIS for Pneumococcal vaccines are available at the above link to CDC Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) site.

Also included in the attachments are the current Adult and Pediatric Immunization Schedules.
