Nevada State Immunization Program’s 2016 Updates for Vaccine Storage, Handling & Ordering

PROGRAM: 
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 how to safely store and handle vaccine, how to use a data logger, and how to order or return VFC vaccine through Nevada Web IZ, the state immunization information system.

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

  • Identify the required training level in Nevada WebIZ for online vaccine ordering

  • Learn about online ordering through Nevada WebIZ

  • Learn about vaccine returns through Nevada WebIZ

FEATURED PRESENTER: Glenn Witt
Glenn is the Vaccine Manager for Nevada State Immunization Program. He oversees agreements, training, vaccine ordering and compliance of Nevada providers enrolled in the Vaccine for Children (VFC) Program or who receive state-funded vaccine. His wide range of past work experiences include service in the Army Special Forces, air transportation of critically ill patients for a large Medivac company, and management of medical operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for an international security company.
