VFC/GIP Inventory Reports
Two VFC/GIP (Vaccines For Children/Georgia Immunization
Program) inventory reports are available in GRITS. These reports
are the VFC/GIP Comprehensive Report and the Vaccine
Accountability Statement.
VFC/GIP Comprehensive Report
The VFC/GIP Comprehensive Report is a site-level report produced
for each site that has inventory. This report is automatically produced
when a physical inventory count is submitted on the Submit Inventory
Count screen.
The VFC Comprehensive Report (COMPREP4) displays vaccine
usage by eligibility, the most recent inventory count and wastage
information regarding VFC (public) inventory for sites with inventory
that do not report to a Public Health District.
The GIP Comprehensive Report (COMPREP410) is for sites with
inventory whose organizations report to a Public Health District. Like
the VFC version, it displays the most recent inventory count and
wastage information regarding VFC (public) inventory, but in addition
to displaying vaccine usage by eligibility, it also separates out usage
for clients 19 and older.
See Submitting Inventory Count in the Manage Inventory chapter for
generating the VFC/GIP Comprehensive Report.
Vaccine Accountability Statement
The Vaccine Accountability Statement displays vaccine distribution,
usage and wastage information regarding VFC (public) inventory.
The report additionally gives information on discrepancies between a
site’s physical count of inventory and what is expected in GRITS.
Replacement costs for unaccounted for, spoiled and expired vaccines
are calculated.
Site-level Reports
Site-level vaccine accountability statements are produced for each
site that has inventory. These reports are automatically produced
when a physical inventory count is submitted on the Submit
Inventory Count screen.
• SITEACCT: a vaccine accountability statement for sites with
inventory whose organizations report to a Public Health District.
• PRIACCT1: a vaccine accountability statement for sites with
inventory that do not report to a Public Health District.
Reports and Forms
Georgia Registry of Immunization Transactions and Services

Note: The report you receive (PRIACCT1 or SITEACCT) is
determined by your organization’s setup in GRITS, which is
handled by the State.
Organization-level Reports
For each organization, after all sites with inventory in a given
organization have submitted a physical inventory count in GRITS
for a given reporting period, an organization-level vaccine
accountability statement will automatically be created by GRITS
that combines the site-level information into an aggregate report.
• COACCT1: a vaccine accountability statement for
organizations that report to a Public Health District. This report
combines all site-level SITEACCT reports for the organization.
• ORGACCT1: a vaccine accountability statement for sites with
inventory that do not report to a Public Health District. This
report combines all site-level PRIACCT1 reports for the
organization.
Note: The report you receive (COACCT1 or ORGACCT1) is
determined by your organization’s setup in GRITS, which is
handled by the State.
District-level Reports
For a Public Health District, after all sites with inventory that report to a
public health district have submitted a physical inventory count in
GRITS for a given reporting period, a district-level vaccine
accountability statement will automatically be created by GRITS. The
