Influenza Immunization Program newsletter - August/September 2018

Influenza Immunization Program Update

September 10, 2018

Planning and resource development for the Influenza Immunization Program for 2018-2019 is well underway. The start date of the public program is October 15, 2018. Public Health will begin immunizing high risk individuals starting October 1, 2018.

The Influenza Vaccine Provider Registration Form will be available on the Alberta Health Services website in early September; it can be accessed on the website under the last tab on the far right, Vaccine Provider Registration Form, or may be faxed to your site by your Zone Contact. The Influenza Vaccine Provider Registration Form contains a request for vaccine storage information. This section must be completed and then the form can be submitted by fax or email to your Zone Contact.

Confirmation of program enrolment will occur when you receive the 2018-2019 Medical Officer of Health Influenza Immunization Program Letter. This letter will outline all aspects of the program for the 2018-2019 season. Influenza vaccine order sets will be added to the vaccine inventory system, AVI, as providers are accepted.
