  2. Log in to PhilaVax
  3. Complete a reconciliation
  4. On the Vaccine Order page, check the box next to “Will this be an influenza order?”
  5. Order what your site needs for 4 to 6 weeks. Be sure that you have room in your fridge to store all of the flu vaccine and other vaccine you order.
  6. Check the status of your order 2 business days later in the PhilaVax IIS. Approved: your flu vaccine is on its way. Rejected: Click on view next to your order to review the notes from the VFC staff. Once all issues are resolved, resubmit your order.

To place subsequent orders

Subsequent flu vaccine orders don’t require a reconciliation, as long as you’ve completed one within 60 days.

Order flu vaccine as often as you need – there is no minimum time period between orders.

The Immunization Program will make every effort to fulfill your flu vaccine request. If the product you request is only available in limited quality, your order may be reduced and we will add a note to the comment box.
