The Military Vaccine Agency - Vaccine Healthcare Centers Network (MILVAX-VHCN), merged into a single organization 1 October 2013. They are located in Northern Virginia, supporting DoD vaccination programs protecting Military Service Members, their dependents and beneficiaries; and provide educational support and training resources for DoD healthcare providers and clinicians.
We are committed to provide and enable the best quality and responsive patient-centered immunization healthcare and readiness.
To enhance the Military Health System (MHS) focus on health and healing by supporting immunization program efficacy, safety and acceptability, enabling solutions that address personalized medicine and improved evidence based practices.
A major component of the MILVAX-VHCN education and training vision is “Immunization University”, an informal collection of guidelines and training resources to help staff make every immunization an excellent one. Designed to enhance the skills of healthcare workers from a variety of backgrounds, Immunization University (ImzU) offers training on vaccine products and immunization services through on-line distance learning and on-site classes sponsored by MILVAX-VHCN. CE Credits are available for on-site training events. Certificates of completion and consolidated student transcripts are available via the ImzU LMS, and may be accessed online.
