RE: 2019-2020 Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP)

• All UIIP-approved pharmacies are required to fax or email a copy of the previous four weeks refrigerator temperature logs to the HKPR District Health Unit every *Tuesday, starting TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1st, regardless of vaccine being ordered. Fax number is 1-905-885-5352 and email address is immunization@hkpr.on.ca

• If the temperature logs are NOT received, the distributors will be notified, and all received or pending Influenza vaccine orders will be suspended for one week.

• UIIP-approved pharmacies will order and receive vaccine directly from wholesale distributors.

• Pharmacies will be notified by the MOHLTC as to when they can expect their vaccine.

• Flu vaccine may only be administered to high-risk clients until the UIIP official launch date.

• Please refer clients wishing to receive Fluzone® High-Dose to their primary care provider or the health unit.

Ontario's Ministry of Health has yet to announce the official UIIP launch date for 2019/2020.

The UIIP implementation package is available to all health care providers who will be administering influenza vaccine at http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/publichealth/flu/uiip/default.aspx
