IT'S BETTER THAN EVER: ADULT IMMUNIZATION RECORD CARD NOW INCLUDES SPACE TO RECORD MENINGOCOCCAL, Tdap, ZOSTER, AND HPV VACCINES

If you're looking for an easy, economical way to encourage your adult patients to keep track of their vaccination status, you should use IAC's popular Adult Immunization Record Card. Since introducing it in May 2002, IAC has filled orders for more than 4.0 million cards. Healthcare providers across the nation are ordering and using it.

IAC recently updated the card with space for health professionals to record these four vaccines:

  • Meningococcal
  • Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis)
  • Zoster (herpes zoster [shingles])
  • HPV (human papillomavirus)

EASY
Succinct and focused, the record card now lists ten vaccines that all adults or certain adults should receive. Printed on rip-proof, smudge-proof, waterproof paper, the card is virtually indestructible. Plus, it's sized to fit in a wallet, where it's unlikely to be misplaced. And its bright yellow color makes it hard to miss. Once you give one to a patient, chances are good the patient will retain it and refer to it.

To view the card online, go to:

ECONOMICAL
The cost for one 250-count box is $35; two boxes (500 cards), $65; three boxes (750 cards), $90; four boxes (1,000 cards), $110. That is a remarkable price for a tool that can educate and motivate an adult patient to engage in a lifesaving preventive act over the course of a lifetime.

Additional pricing for larger quantities can be found on the online order form (see link below). NOTE: THE FIRST ORDER OF A 250-CARD BOX COMES WITH A 30-DAY MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE.

LAMINATED U.S. CHILDHOOD AND ADULT IMMUNIZATION SCHEDULES ARE A MUST FOR EVERY EXAM ROOM

A set of laminated immunization schedules will be a useful and welcome addition to every exam room at your practice site. IAC adapted the schedules from the ones posted on NIP's website. Each is coated in durable plastic for heavy-duty use, complete with essential footnotes, and printed in color for easy comprehension. Following is information on the schedules, including their prices and ordering options.

Childhood schedule. Based on the ACIP/AAP/AAFP-approved Recommended Childhood and Adolescent Immunization Schedule, 2006, this 2-sided, 8.5" x 11" schedule is printed back-to-back. To view it, go to:
http://www.immunize.org/immschedules/immschedule_child.pdf

Note: The laminated childhood schedule does not include information about administering the newly licensed rotavirus vaccine because rotavirus vaccine is not on the official 2006 childhood schedule on which the laminated schedule is based.

Prices for the childhood schedule are $4 each for 1–4 copies and $3 each for 5–19 copies. Discount pricing is available for larger quantities.

Adult schedule. Based on the ACIP/AAFP/ACOG-approved Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule, Oct. 2005–Sept. 2006, this 4-sided, 11" x 17" schedule is printed back-to-back and folded to 8.5" x 11". To view it, go to:
http://www.immunize.org/immschedules/immschedule_adult.pdf

Prices for the adult schedule are $5 each for 1–4 copies and $4 each for 5–19 copies. Discount pricing is available for larger quantities.

Ordering options. Order online with a credit card, or order by mail or fax, using a credit card, check, or purchase order. Shipping is free within the United States.
