Don’t Forget to Check Your Codes!

Did you know that having incorrect or outdated CVX, MVX and VIS codes in your EHR’s immunization table can result in vaccine messages getting rejected and not transferring to patient records?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.
