Tracking Historical Vaccines
Clinics often receive records from previous veterinarians stating vaccinations for a patient are current. When these vaccinations need to be entered into the patient medical record the staff can add them in through the patient Quick Links in the medical record by clicking on Add Historical Vaccination.
The staff will be directed to the following screen where they enter the “Date Vaccinated” by the previous veterinarian.
They will have the option to choose from the Vaccine* drop-down list which vaccine to enter. Note: this list comes from the billable items checked off as “Is Vaccine?”
Deleted vaccines and items will no longer be included in the list. Additionally, information regarding the billable item type and vaccine duration has been added to assist in identification.
The next options are all optional: Veterinarian’s name, Veterinarian’s License, Veterinarian’s Practice Name, Tag Number, Serial Number, Manufacturer, Vaccine Expiration Date, Date Tag Issued. These will appear on the Vaccination Log if entered.
Dosage Type* will be defaulted to the setting listed on the “Is Vaccine” details of the vaccine chosen. *Can be changed from the drop-down list if needed
Sex will be defaulted by the current selection of the patient. *Can be changed from the drop-down list if needed.
Weight and Weight Unit will default to the most current weight and unit for the patient at the time of entry and can be updated at this time.
If the vaccine selected from the Vaccine drop-down list has a reminder set up, the system will “Create Reminder” in the patient medical record when added historically.
When complete click “Save” and the system will direct the staff to the “Vaccination Log.” Which will display all vaccinations for this patient entered historically or through treatment. When complete, click Save and Create Another to add additional vaccines. Note: the system will save the information entered on the previous vaccine EXCEPT Vaccine* and Dosage Type.
