• Administering Vaccines
  • General Issues

Is it acceptable to administer vaccines in the nurses’ station where vital signs and other patient care is performed?

Yes. Vaccines can be administered in a patient care area. The recommendation from CDC’s safe injection practices experts is that storing and preparing vaccines should not be done in the same area where patient care is conducted. These activities should be done in a separate area.
