Keep informed about the latest on Alberta's Influenza Immunization program.
We are currently working on the 2016 – 2017 Influenza Vaccine Agreement and will have it posted once finalized. Thank you for your patience.
The Agreement must be signed by all qualified community and/or other authorized providers with prescribing authority (e.g. physicians, nurse practitioners, LTC facilities, Workplace Health & Safety, etc.) who wish to access provincially funded influenza vaccine, to administer in community offices/clinics/sites.
Vaccine will be ordered through the Alberta Vaccine Inventory (AVI) system for all Zones. Information on ordering will be communicated directly to you, through your Zone contact, by the end of September. You must submit this signed Agreement before vaccine will be released to community offices/clinics/sites through AVI.
Pharmacies must order and receive Influenza Vaccine through their primary pharmacy wholesale distributors.
This is a reminder to all vaccine providers involved in the provincially funded immunization program. All vaccine storage and handling requirements outlined in the Alberta Health Vaccine Cold Chain Policy must be fully implemented by September 30, 2016 in order to continue to receive provincially funded vaccine. Ability to order vaccine will be impacted for sites that are not compliant with the policy by this date. It is recommended that providers make any necessary equipment purchases as soon as possible; it may take time for these purchases to arrive at your sites or be installed.
The below documents contain important information for community providers implementing a safe and effective influenza immunization program for 2015-2016.
All questions regarding billing are to be directed to Alberta Blue Cross.
