Mapping product names to CVX and MVX

The CDC's National Center of Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) developed and maintains HL7 Table 0292, Vaccine Administered (CVX). The link below is the most up to date value set for this table. It includes both active and inactive vaccines available in the US. CVX codes for inactive vaccines allow transmission of historical immunization records. When a MVX (manufacturer) code is paired with a CVX (vaccine administered) code, the specific trade named vaccine may be indicated. CVX Code mapped to product name:

MEDPROS - Medical Protection System

https://medpros.mods.army.mil/MEDPROSNew/

The Army Medical Department designed MEDPROS to provide for the data entry and reporting/tracking of Medical and Dental Readiness information of Soldiers, Units, and Task Forces. The primary users of the MEDPROS online applications are the Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) locations, Medical Treatment Facilities, National Guard State and Army Reserve RRC Surgeon's Offices, and unit Commanders at all levels needing to monitor the Medical Readiness status of their subordinate units and Soldiers. MEDPROS also provides every Soldier with AKO alerts as to their Individual Medical Readiness status thereby eliminating their need to obtain access to the online systems.

As an important part of the Medical Operational Data System (MODS), MEDPROS contains the following 4 key modules:

  • Individual Medical Readiness (IMR)
  • Immunization Tracking System (ITS)
  • Deployment Health Assessments
    • Pre (DD2795)
    • Post (DD2796)
    • Post-Deployment Health Re-assessments (DD2900)
  • Periodic Health Assessments

NAVY SHIPBOARD
SAMS - SNAP (Shipboard Non-Tactical ADP Program) Automated Medical System
SAMS was developed as an automated means of supporting and improving Naval health care by removing the administrative layers that generally hamper efficient operation of health care providers. SAMS also serves as the primary tool for reporting and tracking immunizations for the Navy and Military Sealift Command. SAMS data is uploaded to Navy Medicine Online; this data is then sent to MRRS for Force Medical Readiness Tracking.

Sample Q&A: Pneumococcal

How many doses of pneumococcal vaccine should I receive?
As an adult, the number of pneumococcal vaccine doses you need depends on your age and your health. People who are older than 65 and those with chronic health conditions are often indicated to receive the pneumococcal vaccine. Most people only need one shot, which should provide long-term protection. People who received pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine before age 65, may need a one-time revaccination if 5 years have elapsed since the previous dose.

Pneumococcal vaccine is also given to children. There are many factors related to dosing and indications for receiving pneumococcal vaccine. We recommend that you contact the IHB if you have questions or visit the CDC website for more information.

We welcome all healthcare workers to the DoD Immunization University. We are committed to making this the most fruitful single location to access to a wide range of training products relating to immunization services.

What is Immunization University?

An informal collection of guidelines and training resources, sponsored by the Immunization Healthcare Branch, to help staff make every immunization an excellent one. Designed to enhance the skills of healthcare workers from a variety of professional and paraprofessional backgrounds, "Immunization University" offers training on vaccine products and immunization services through distance learning and on-site classes.

The ImzU logo, with its torch as beacon, emphasizes our educational efforts via Immunization University, “Imz U.” Established in 2005, its motto is “Each Immunization an Excellent One,” summarizing our obligations as leaders and clinicians in the United States Armed Forces. The banner reads Scientia * Tutela * Salveo, referring to our keystones of knowledge, protection, and health.

How do I find out more?

The core elements of Immunization University are available here. Additional tools and courses will be added over time. Please sign up for our ListServ which will also include updates as they become available. You may also check back to this page regularly for the latest information on Immunization University.

What is the IHB ListServ & how do I get it?

The IHB ListServ is a bimonthly electronic newsletter sent to ImzU registered users. It includes important information about DoD vaccines, immunization policies and practices, training opportunities, and other vaccine-related information; as well as the latest ACIP and CDC guidelines and recommendations. Review archived copies of these messages.

The Immunization Healthcare Branch hosted workshops that began an intensive process designed to retool, refine and improve program education. This process, formally known as “Message Mapping,” provides consistent, well-thought-out messages, the content foundation for educational products, and is a valuable tool to educate spokespersons on the DoD Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program (AVIP) & the Smallpox Vaccination Program (SVP).
