1.  IAC has posted an important correction to its educational piece for healthcare professionals: "Medical Management of Vaccine Reactions in Children and Teens"

The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) has posted the following important correction to its educational piece for healthcare professionals: "Medical Management of Vaccine Reactions in Children and Teens."

On page 3 of 3, an incorrect epinephrine dose is listed in the table titled "First-Line Treatment, Epinephrine." In the row for infants and children age 5–7 years, 40–56 lb, 18–25.5 kg, the incorrect dose read "0.2–25 mL (or mg)" and now has been corrected to read "0.2–0.25 ml (or mg)."

From April 7 until the afternoon of April 12, the incorrect version was posted on IAC's website. If you downloaded "Medical Management of Vaccine Reactions in Children and Teens" prior to April 13, 2011, be sure to download the updated and corrected version at http://www.immunize.org/catg.d/p3082a.pdf

IAC thanks Robin Candace, RN, BSN, Compliance Manager, LifeLong West Berkeley Family Practice, Berkeley, California, for notifying us of this significant error.
