Flu Shot Information and Guidance

Influenza Information and Guidance for Physicians 

The Provincial Government's influenza immunization program is commenced on October 21, 2020. As was previously indicated, the MCP fee code for flu shots has been temporarily reinstated effective October 21, 2020 to June 30, 2021.

For physicians who wish to offer flu shots as part of their clinics, please find below a number of resources and guidance documents to help support your practice in managing this process. 

Ordering vaccines - The Department and Health and Community services has indicated that for the first month physicians can order and receive what they feel they need. If large orders are considered a major outlier the clinic may be contacted to confirm the order. Over time physicians can replenish and have access to what they need unless there is an unexpected supply issue.

eDOCSNL Med Access users - Please look for an email from eDOCSNL on influenza vaccination processes specific to Med Access users, with special attention to the reporting requirements for flu vaccinations in the EMR including the template that is required. 

Any members who encounter any issues with ordering, pick up etc. can contact Lynn Barter LBarter@nlma.nl.ca
