Issue 679: August 15, 2007
1.  Now is a great time to purchase IAC's top-quality products, especially if you have fiscal year-end-dollars to spend

Private practices, public clinics, corporations, and health departments find IAC's immunization products to be of great value in simplifying and improving the quality of vaccination delivery. August and September are a great time to stock up--as the influenza vaccination season is gearing up.

Also, if your fiscal year end is September 30, buying needed materials is a good way to spend "left-over" dollars. If you can make major purchases, please do--that way, you'll receive significant discounts.

Several months ago, IAC introduced a shopping cart to make it easy for you to buy any and all of our products with one simple transaction. Here's a rundown of what the cart includes--if you think any of these products will help you, please consider a purchase. You'll be getting top-quality products for distribution in your practice, organization, agency, or company.


IMMUNIZATION RECORD CARDS
IAC now offers three vaccination record cards: the popular adult card (more than 5 million sold) and two new cards--one for recording child and teen vaccinations and another for recording lifetime vaccinations. The card trio offers health professionals a way to help any patient maintain a permanent record of their vaccinations. A patient-held card is handy for patients when they enter school, change healthcare providers, or travel abroad.

Designed for a specific age group, each card lists all vaccines recommended for people in the age group. Features of the cards include the following:

  • All recently licensed vaccines: MCV, HPV, Rota, Tdap, zoster
  • A column to record the due date for next vaccine dose
  • Patient's name and birth date on both sides (helpful when photocopying)
  • Space for patient I.D. number

The cards are printed on durable rip-, smudge-, and water-proof paper. Sized to fit in a wallet, they are brightly colored to stand out. To learn more about IAC's cards and to view images of each, or to order online or download an order form, visit www.immunize.org/shop

To request sample cards, send your request to admin@immunize.org

Pricing starts at one box (250 cards) for $35. The first order of a 250-card box comes with a 30-day, money-back guarantee. Discounts are available for larger orders: two boxes (500 cards) for $65; three boxes (750 cards) for $90; four boxes (1,000 cards) for $110.

In recent years, many states, health plans, and corporate partners have placed large orders for IAC's record cards and had them customized with special colors, logos, and text. For quotes on customizing or placing orders in excess of 200 boxes, call (651) 647-9009 or email admin@immunize.org


LAMINATED IMMUNIZATION SCHEDULES
IAC's durable versions of the current immunization schedules are a must for every exam room in your practice. We offer them for two age groups: The child/teen immunization schedule is for people ages 0-18 years; it was updated for use in January 2007 and is approved by ACIP/AAP/AAFP. The adult schedule is for everyone else; it was approved by ACIP/AAFP/ACOG/ACP and updated for use from October 2006-September 2007. This schedule will expire soon. To order the new laminated adult schedule, please check back in November at www.immunize.org/shop Both schedules are laminated for heavy-duty use, complete with essential footnotes, and printed in color for easy reading.

Each schedule has four pages (printed back-to-back) and measures 11" x 17" (8.5" x 11" when folded). To learn more about the schedules and to view images of each, or to order online or download an order form, visit www.immunize.org/shop

Prices start at $5 each for 1-4 copies and drop to $3 each for 5-19 copies. Discount pricing is available for 20 or more copies. For quotes on customizing or placing orders in excess of 999 schedules, call (651) 647-9009 or email admin@immunize.org


"IMMUNIZATION TECHNIQUES" VIDEOTAPE AND DVD
If you vaccinate children or adults, your practice needs the training video "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring." Developed by the California Department of Health Services Immunization Branch in collaboration with a team of national experts, the video is considered a vital immunization tool. In fact, since IAC began distributing it, we have delivered orders for 21,000 copies.

In a short 35 minutes, the video teaches best practices for administering intramuscular (IM) and subcutaneous (SC) vaccines to infants, children, and adults. It is designed for use as a "hands-on" instructional program for new staff and as a refresher course for experienced vaccinators.

The video is available in VHS tape and DVD formats. For information about the two formats and the print materials included with each, or to order online or to download an order form, visit www.immunize.org/shop

The price of the VHS is $30; the price of the DVD is $35. Discount pricing is available on orders of 20 or more copies. For quotes on placing orders in excess of 500 copies, call (651) 647-9009 or email admin@immunize.org


"VACCINE STORAGE AND HANDLING TOOLKIT"
Updated by CDC in January 2007, this CD-ROM toolkit provides everything you want to know about vaccine storage and handling on one CD. It includes

  • Guidelines that cover temperature monitoring, inventory management, troubleshooting, and more
  • Two videos: "How to Protect Your Vaccine Supply" and "Top 10 Storage and Handling Errors"
  • An array of print resources: forms, checklists, posters, and contact information

A starting price of $15 makes this CD-ROM one of today's best immunization values! Discount pricing is available on orders of 5 or more copies. For quotes on customizing or placing orders in excess of 499 copies, call (651) 647-9009 or email admin@immunize.org

For additional information about the CD-ROM, and to order it online or to download an order form, visit www.immunize.org/shop
