Vaccines are expensive so having a plan to consult when an emergency presents itself is essential.
*Review your plan to update it and maintain familiarity with the plan.
*All staff should know how to find the emergency plan.
*At least 2 practice leaders should organize the emergency response and completely understand the steps of the emergency plan.
*It should be clear where the vaccine will go in case storage units are no longer operational.
*Transport storage units should be kept in a easy to find place, preferably close to the vaccine refrigerators.
*Make sure to consult the vaccine manufacturers and your VFC representative during and after the process.
