Flu Shot Numbers - Nov 19

Partial Flu Shot Injections - Nov 19

As per SIMS Chapter 5, Section 4.4, if less than a full dose of vaccine was given because of syringe or needle malfunction, or other circumstance, the full vaccine dose should be repeated immediately to ensure the client’s protection. The circumstances may also require you to report the incident as a medication error.


Vaccine Supply - with recent national media reports on vaccine supply, PAS wants to assure our members that vaccine supply in Saskatchewan is solid. The Ministry reports that there is a sufficient inventory of flu vaccine in Saskatchewan. Mckesson has received an additional 50K doses this week and the balance of the HD vaccine is going out to pharmacies shortly. - Oct 30

Ordering Information for Fact Sheets & Wallet Cards

Fact Sheets   
Immunization fact sheets must be made available to patients. You may want to have this information on your website and on screens in your pharmacy to help reduce the number of people asking for hard copies. The 2020-2021 Influenza Vaccine sheets are available on the link above. 

Wallet Cards 
Record of influenza immunization wallet cards may be provided by the SHA, AHA, and FNJ public health to other vaccine providers who obtain their vaccine supply from public health. You will need some on hand but many patients may not ask for one this year. If you are providing one for a child age 5-8 needing a second dose of vaccine (minimum of 4 weeks later) be sure to also include the date of the next vaccination required on the wallet card. The cards are available on the link above.
