This forum is part of a pilot project initiated by CDC in response to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released final “Guidance for Industry: Bar Code Label Requirements – Questions and Answers” and a study on the impact of 2D barcoded vaccines. A major portion of the project is a pilot implementation involving 10 CDC immunization program grantees, over 200 immunizing provider sites, and 2 vaccine manufacturers.
The 2D Vaccine Barcode Pilot’s Educational Forum provides an opportunity to engage the immunization community in presentations and discussions on the implications and challenges of implementing 2D barcoding technology on vaccine products in the inventory management and
administration workflows and on vaccine information statement (VIS)
sheets. In addition to that, the CDC will discuss the 2D Barcode Implementation Pilot Project initiated in September 2011, the lessons learned, and early Pilot findings.
We invite you to attend the Educational Forum to gain insights from Pilot participants, including grantees, vaccine manufacturers, electronic medical record (EMR) vendors, and providers themselves.
Immunization community stakeholders interested in understanding 2D vaccine barcoding and the lessons learned from the Pilot:
