Immunization Codes
A question was raised after the PowerSchool Sharing session about immunization codes. Do any of you have a list of immunization codes that you would share for those non-nurses in the group who have to enter this into PowerSchool?

If so, would you make a comment below or send to me at ggillmin@esu10.org and I'll post the list on the Community as a document.

Here is what Pearson has in their documentation, but don't feel you have to follow this:

We are suggesting the following name/code when setting up the Health Vaccine area at the district level in PowerSchool. Should your state/province have different naming or codes, you would then use the conventions advised by your state or province. Additionally, should you need to split out vaccines such as MMR determine how you plan to code those vaccines.

Name - Code

 Polio - IPV

 DTP – DTP

 MMR – MMR

 HIB Meningitis – HIB

 Hepatitis B – HepB

 Hepatitis A – HepA

 Varicella (Chicken pox) - VCP

 Rotavirus - RV

 Tetanus - Td

 Tuberculosis - TB

 Influenza - INF

 Pneumococcal Conjugate - PCV

 Pneumococcal Polysaccharide - PPV


   
This is basically what I used when I set mine up, I did set up two separate Varicella codes, one for use that they've had the disease, and one for the vaccine.  This seems to be very user-friendly in editing if you make a mistake in the initial set-up.  (So far, anyway!) 
I've got all of my high-school students entered, but not the other sites...I have  corrected, added, etc. as I went thru the students. 
PS-We didn't have this on computer previously, so there weren't any files to match up or upload.

   
Tanya:  How did you do this for varicella?  Our nurses want to put in something when they have the disease...we can put in an approximate date (parents usually say age 3 or something like that)...or what?   They want it to show that it was the disease, not the vaccine.   If we put it in the comments, it doesn't show just on the screen.   Any ideas to make it simple? 

   
I set up varicella vax and varicella disease for my "vaccines" then if the parent said that they had the disease I just put 01/01/year in...unless they knew more specific.  I also marked the disease as optional so it wouldn't show up as them missing a vaccine.

   
Thank you..sounds like a great plan!
