In our office nurses administer the vaccines. You should provide the ability for nurses to transmit it to the State Registry, rather than requiring a physician to do it.36 votes

Even though "pneumococcal conjugate, 13 valent" is in the vaccine list, please make it more obvious that this generic name is also known as "Prevnar-13" so we can find things easier32 votes

Currently, only the primary facility can transmit immunizations to their immunization registry. Immunization registries require that all locations submit their immunizations, differentiated by a location identifier. Each facility under Practice Fusion should be able to register and transmit immunization files to their chosen registry.26 votes

When adding a historical vaccine, I've notice two vaccines in the drop down list that don't exist and at least one common vaccine that is not listed. There no vaccines by the name or abbreviation of TDaP or DTAP. The upper and lower case of these vaccines is VERY important and has to do with dosing. Having TDaP and DTAP available in the drop down is very confusing. On the other hand, Tdap, which is commonly administered, is not on the drop down list.15 votes

Occasionally, I'll find that vaccine expiration dates are off by a day or 2 usually from how they were put in. Can you correct this?5 votes
As of 7/17/2015, we have resolved this issue.
