|Two-Way Vax Trade|
Process changes to maximize use of existing vaccine supply: To help make sure more children get their flu shots, the NC Division of Public Health has implemented some important changes to the process for bi-directional borrowing with Vaccines for Children. The process for borrowing/replacing virtual inventory in the NCIR has been streamlined. Doses for flu must be replaced within 90 days and before 12/31/20. (Doses for other vaccines need to be replaced within 30 days.) The TYPE of vaccines needs to match, but the BRAND does not.
