Common Errors When
Entering Immunizations
Common errors when giving vaccinations and/or entering vaccination information into the
SDIR:
 Combination Vaccines – example: DTaP and Hib – Sometimes these are administered
separately, or as a DTaP-Hib combination vaccine. Be sure to enter these as the
appropriate combination vaccine
 DTP – Sometimes DTP is chosen instead of DTaP. DTP is no longer generally used in the
U.S but is still available in some foreign countries. This should only be used for historical
vaccines given by other providers.
 OPV (Oral polio vaccine) – This should only be used for historical vaccines given by other
providers. OPV is no longer used in the U.S but is common in historical records.
 Pneumo: This should only be used for historical vaccines given by other providers. If
entering an administered vaccine, select the specific type of Pneumococcal vaccine-either
PCV 7 or PPV23:
 Body Site – Select the appropriate body site, if known. Select “unknown” if not known.
 Other – Check “Other” if the vaccine was given by another provider.
 Insert button – You must click on the insert button after every vaccine given on a different
date.
 Cancel button – Click on the cancel button to return to the Immunization screen.
Contraindications and
Precautions
The list of Contraindications and Precautions is in the same field, however they can and many times
are, separate health issues. They can also be conditions which are permanent or temporary. Temporary conditions can be given a start and end date. Contraindications are conditions in an individual
that greatly increases the chance of a serious adverse reaction. In general, vaccines should not be
given when a contraindication is present. Precautions are a condition in a recipient that greatly increases the chance of a serious adverse reaction or compromise the ability of the vaccine to produce immunity. In general, vaccines are deferred when a precaution is present; however the benefit
of having the vaccine may outweigh the risk of an adverse reaction. (Epidemiology and Prevention of
Vaccine Preventable Diseases, 9th Edition, Jan. 2006. pgs 1-17.

1) Assessment Report – This report is a list of all immunizations given and who entered
or modified the data. There are two forms of the report under this section: “Detailed”
and “”Summary”. The Detailed Report (generated as the Patient Record Activity Report “) is a list of data entry activities summarized by patients for the dates specified;
the Summary Report (User Activity Report) is the same information but organized by
user. Inactive patients can or cannot be included in the list.

county’s Immunization Program. This report provides a summary of the number of
shots given over a specified time period by doses and specified age groups.
4) Vaccine Profile: A useful report for providers in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) programs. It compiles a summary of immunizations by VFC eligibility and age groups.
b. Reminder Reports: There are two reports under this section: “Reminder/Outreach” and
“Activity Reports.”
1) Reminder/Outreach – These reports may be used by providers to track activities to
reach children who need reminder notices sent; or are overdue or missing immunizations. The report has a variety of different choices to select from: by provider/facility;
next due date, date of birth, as well as a sorting feature by due date, date of birth, last/
first names, or medical record number.
2) Activity Report – Reminder and recall reports can be generated using the activity
report feature. The age of children (in months), activity date(s), report type and provider/facility may be selected to create this sorted list.
c. Quarterly Activity Report: This report is used by public health centers and community
clinics which receive state funds for conducting immunization clinics for children under 4
years of age, to submit to the County Immunization Branch a summary of certain activities related to the population they served and their immunization follow-up activities such
as reminder/recall. The report summarizes: reminder/recalls sent out, and immunizations
including a specific breakout of MMR doses given to children under 4,
d. Provider Profile: This report looks at the following data quality and improvement criteria::
Number of duplicate home records, reminder/recalls sent, expired lots, VFC “Not Qualified” patients, private/non-VFC lots, number of patients with no address/bad address and
no phone/bad phone numbers.
Export for CASA and COCASA – A report for CASA or COCASA can be generated by a
provider site for children of specified birth date ranges. The report can exclude inactive
patients and patients who have only had one immunization visit with the provider/facility.
