ImmPRINT

Note to All Providers

Our latest ImmPRINT enhancement is coming in October 2020. The Alabama Department of Public Health, Immunization Division, will be providing free supplemental Adult Influenza (Flu) Vaccine along with ancillary supplies for ImmPRINT providers. For more details, see our Adult Flu Vaccine Flyer. All interested providers will be able to place an order for this free supplemental flu vaccine in our new vaccine ordering management module VOMS (Vaccine Ordering Management System). This module will be available in ImmPRINT in October. The requirements to receive this free supplemental adult flu vaccine include, but are not limited to the following conditions: the provider must be registered in ImmPRINT, follow CDC's storage and handling guidelines, serve target populations, and enter administered vaccine data back into ImmPRINT within 72 hours. In the near future, we will be sending out details about COVID-19 vaccine as it becomes available.
