Vaccine Update for Healthcare Providers

VEC Announcements

Vaccine cost survey

Last month’s Vaccine Update included an article about vaccine costs which also had a link to a reader survey. Unfortunately, few readers took the opportunity to respond to the five-question, multiple choice survey. As a result, we are unable to share any results at this time; however, we have left the survey open in the hope that more of you will take a moment to let us know how vaccine costs affect your practice.

Webinar reminder

Just a reminder that the next “Current Issues in Vaccines” webinar is quickly approaching! If you have not yet registered for the Sept. 10 presentation by Dr. Offit, you can see the topics or register on the Vaccine Webinar Series page of our website.

Updated influenza Q&A

“Influenza: What You Should Know” Q&A sheet has been updated to reflect information important for the upcoming influenza vaccine season, including the CDC’s expressed preference for the use of the nasal spray version in healthy children between 2 and 8 years of age when available.

Be sure you are distributing Volume 11, Fall 2014, when discussing the influenza vaccine with your patients and their families.

A single English version sheet and order form will be mailed to providers on our mailing list during the month of Sept. If you do not currently receive our mailings and wish to, please email us at vacinfo@email.chop.edu and include your complete and accurate mailing address, so that we can add you to our database.

Just a reminder that you are allowed to photocopy our Q&A sheets for distribution or you can use our free “Prescription for Information” pads to send patients and families to the information online. Prescription pads can be ordered in English or Spanish, as often and as many as necessary, from online or printed order forms.
