Denver unveils immunization system

Denver public health officials recently unveiled an automated vaccine administration

program that keeps track of all immunizations given in the city.

The system, announced during National Immunization Month, will keep

records of immunizations given at Denver clinics, school sites or community

health centers, print reminders for families of children who need vaccinations,

and automatically keep track of vaccine inventory.

"At any one of our sites, we can pull up immunization information and

know exactly what vaccines the child was given," said Paul Melinkovich,

assistant director of community services.

Using the system, health providers if patients need vaccinations and

print postcards to inform a family that a vaccine is overdue.

The system, implemented by ManTech Advanced Systems International earlier

this month, is tied into the registration system, so data does not have

to be entered twice.
