Afluria Quad (pharmacode 2581434)

  • People aged 65 years and older
  • Pregnant women

Setting Up

1) Prescriber as Pharmacist Vaccinator

The administrator (Prescriber) should be set up in Toniq as a Pharmacist Vaccinator:

 

Note: The Registration number for a Pharmacist Vaccinator does not have a prefix

This may mean that a pharmacist is listed as a prescriber twice – once with their Professional group set to Pharmacist (and a hyphenated prefix on the Registration number) and the other set to Pharmacist Vaccinator

  • 7. Administration
