1.  Now's a great time to place an order for IAC's top-quality products, especially if you need to spend your fiscal year-end dollars by December 31! For greater discounts, make bulk purchases!

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. We hope you will take this opportunity to add to your supply of immunization products by placing an order soon. Making purchases in November is a smart move--before you get distracted by year-end projects, and for those whose fiscal year ends on December 31, before your fiscal 2008 dollars run out. If you can make major or bulk purchases, please do--and receive quantity discounts.

If you're familiar with IAC's top-quality immunization products, you can start shopping by going to our "Shop IAC" web page now:

If you are new to our product selection, you'll find useful information in the sections below titled IAC's Immunization Products and Product Descriptions.

The seven IAC immunization products listed below will save you valuable staff time and improve the quality of immunization delivery.

  1. Padded Screening Questionnaire for Child and Teen Immunization
  2. Padded Screening Questionnaire for Adult Immunization
  3. Adult Immunization Record Cards
  4. Child and Teen Immunization Record Cards
  5. Lifetime Immunization Record Cards
  6. DVD: "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring"
  7. VHS Video: "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring"

IAC offers three types of immunization products with individual products within each type. The three product types are (1) padded screening questionnaires, (2) immunization record cards, and (3) an immunization techniques training video in two formats. Details on each follow.

We offer two padded screening questionnaires for contraindications and precautions to vaccines:

  • Screening Questionnaire for Child and Teen Immunization
  • Screening Questionnaire for Adult Immunization

If you are you looking for a quick, easy, and thorough way for you and your patients to determine if they have contraindications and precautions to vaccination, look no further! IAC has two products--a padded Screening Questionnaire for Child and Teen Immunization and a second padded Screening Questionnaire for Adult Immunization--that solve the problem easily. Using these simple 1-page questionnaires, patients check boxes "yes" or "no" while waiting to be seen. Their answers are then ready for your review.

The questionnaires come in convenient tear-off pads of 100 sheets. The price per pad is economical (discounts for 2 pads or more), so you'll be able to keep pads at the receptionist's desk, the nurse's station, and in every exam room. Each pad comes with four reference sheets for health professionals, which are printed on cardstock. To learn more about the padded questionnaires, or to order online or download an order form, visit

Prices start at $16 each for one pad and drop to $12 each for two pads, $11 each for three pads, and $10 each for four pads. For quotes on larger quantities or customizing, call (651) 647-9009 or email

We offer three immunization record cards:

  • Adult Immunization Record Cards
  • Child and Teen Immunization Record Cards
  • Lifetime Immunization Record Cards

Our vaccination record cards include the popular adult card (more than 6 million sold) and two newer cards--one for recording child and teen vaccinations and another for recording lifetime vaccinations.

The cards offer 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.

Each type of card is designed for a specific age group and lists all vaccines recommended for people in the age group. Features of the cards include the following:

  • All recently licensed vaccines: MCV, HPV, RV, Tdap, zoster
  • A column to record the due date for the next vaccine dose
  • Space for 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

To request sample cards, email

Pricing starts at one box (250 cards) for $37.50. The first order of a 250-card box comes with a 30-day, money-back guarantee. Discounts are available for larger orders: two boxes, $35 each; three boxes, $32.50 each; four boxes, $30 each.

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

The vaccine administration training video, "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring," comes in two formats:

  • DVD: "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring"
  • VHS videotape: "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring"

If you vaccinate children or adults, your practice needs this training video. Developed in 2001 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 23,000 copies.

In a short 35 minutes, it 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 DVD and VHS videotape 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

In October 2007, we reduced the price of the "Immunization Techniques: Safe, Effective, Caring" video or DVD to a remarkable $10.50 per copy. Previously the VHS videotape was priced at $30 and the DVD at $35.
