VaccineFinder and MedFinder now offer flexible methods for pharmacies to update their vaccine and antiviral drug supply through both automated and manual reporting options.
The VaccineFinder website and platform have been upgraded and participating pharmacies can now update supply estimates for routine adult and child vaccines, and any travel vaccines that they carry.
Having timely and accurate information available in these applications will be especially important this influenza season, and CDC wants to ensure pharmacies are well represented so that people can find them to get their flu vaccine or fill their antiviral drug prescription.
Attached are provider factsheets, which share details on how these systems work and how to enroll. The VaccineFinder team will also host a series of information and training webinars for interested and participating providers (dates below). Pharmacies can register using the links below, and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
NOTE: Pharmacy entities with multiple practice sites (chains, pharmacy networks, etc) are able to combine data for all their sites into one CSV file and upload onto the Locating Health provider portal. Alternatively, if they have the capability to setup a centralized data feed for reporting, HealthMap’s technical team can work with these sites to automate this process. The attached files include the CSV file template and import documentation that outlines the process in detail. The webinars scheduled in September will also demonstrate these processes and provide the opportunity for Q&A.
