Flu Vaccine Request Process

As per last year, you no longer need to request an entire season allocation of influenza vaccine.

Offices that have received influenza vaccine in previous years will automatically be allotted an initial 'start up' supply based on prior orders. New offices interested in offering influenza vaccine to your patients will need to contact VCH Communicable Disease Control at (604) 675-3900 in order to get registered.

Following the initial distribution, please place vaccine requests based on current demand in your office rather than prior experience. To assist you in placing a vaccine request by practice, a group practice or office ID # will be created by VCH and issued under the business office name or lead physician.

Vaccine Request Forms will be created that are unique to your location.  These will be provided to you when you stop by to pick up the initial vaccine 'start up' amount.  Please keep copies for the duration of the influenza season. If you lose this template form, please do call your local community health centre to request a new form for your office.

Please bring adequate cold chain supplies (hard sided coolers, water blankets, and ice packs) when coming to pick up vaccine. Transport material will not be available at the local Community Health Centres and vaccine cannot be released without the recommended cold chain materials.
