November NILE Webinar
December 14, 2016
12:30 pm -1:30 pm

Vaccine Storage, Handling & Ordering on Nevada Web IZ
Adequate training in vaccine management is vital for all personnel who receive, handle, order or administer vaccines.   Due to the fragile, biological nature of vaccines, special care is necessary to maintain their potency and ability to prevent disease.  Any improper storage and handling condition encountered before the patient receives the injection can render the vaccine less effective or useless.

This presentation will cover safe storage and handling of vaccines, use of a data logger, ordering or returning VFC vaccine through Nevada Web IZ, and proper response to temperature excursions, power outages or storage unit malfunction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of maintaining the vaccine cold chain
  • Understand how to monitor the temperature of a vaccine storage unit
  • Identify what actions to take when a data logger alarm message appears
  • Learn about online ordering and vaccine returns through Nevada WebIZ
  • Identify appropriate action steps to use for various temperature problems
