VFC Vaccine Ordering Tip: Double-check Your Doses!

Did you know that you can increase or decrease the number of vaccine doses on your regularly scheduled VFC vaccine order request? Make sure to review the “Projected Doses” on your “Doses Requested and Approved” page. This number is automatically calculated based on the number of doses you administered and how many you have left on hand, but there may be times when you need more than is projected—like back-to-school rush or other events. You can change the quantity in the “Doses Requested” field and the VFC office will review and determine if it’s approved.

Live Webinar for Vaccines for Children (VFC) Providers

Accurately maintaining your VFC inventory is vital to your participation in the program. During our live webinars this month, we will demonstrate how to generate the “Aging Vaccine Report” to identify vaccines that have expired or will be expiring, and reporting wasted and returned vaccines (including expired flu doses). We will also discuss the most common errors that can cause discrepancies with the “Shots Recorded” totals. Click below to register!
