  • Combination Vaccines
  • General Issues

How should we record combination vaccines on paper records (e.g., parent-maintained records, non-computerized office systems)?

You should record the generic abbreviation for the type of vaccine given (e.g., DTaP-IPV-HepB) in each of the sections that correspond to the separate antigens listed on the record (e.g., DTaP section, polio section, hepatitis B section). If possible, avoid using trade names, since trade names could be misinterpreted or discontinued.
