    Did you know that having incorrect or outdated CVX, MVX and VIS codes in your EHR’s immunization table can result in vaccine messages getting rejected and not transferring to patient records? Make sure to regularly review and update to ensure you have the correct codes. See here for important links:

    1. CVX code table: Immunization codes sent by your EMR to FLSHOTS.

    2. MVX code table: Vaccine manufacturers table.

    3. Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) dates: These are the most up-to-date CDC patient vaccine information forms.

During this live webinar, we will demonstrate how to complete inventory adjustments to report wasted/expired vaccines, and generate the Shots Recorded Report to touch on the most common errors that can cause inventory discrepancies.  We will also review the Aging Vaccine Report to identify vaccines that have expired or will be expiring.
