With the Winter season upon us, Healthengine has created our Co-Administration feature which allows your store to administer influenza vaccinations at the same time as COVID-19 vaccinations! Subject to your stores influenza vaccine availability, the ideal time to co-administer vaccinations is on the same day as COVID-19 booster vaccines.
To complement this ideal time, Healthengine has introducted a new Service to your existing list of appointment types called 'COVID-19 and Flu Vaccinations'. This new Service includes 4 new appointment types as seen below:
- Moderna (Booster) and Flu
- Moderna (Booster) and Flucelvax
- Pfizer (Booster) and Flu
- Pfizer (Booster) and Flucelvax
Enabling Co-Administered Appointment Types
To find these new appointment types, navigate to Settings then click on 'Appointment Types' and find the 'COVID-19 and Flu Vaccinations' Service.
To enable these appointment types to publish online for your store, you'll simply need to toggle on the relevant co-administered vaccination type. To learn more about how to do this, check out our Help Centre article, Managing your Services and Appointment Types.
Creating Schedules for Co-Administered Vaccinations
These service types will be added to the Consultation Rooms of the same name in your Manage Availability schedules - for example, Pfizer (Booster) and Flu will be added to Consultation Room 1 - Pfizer.
When creating a schedule for Co-Administration, the setup is the same as any other schedules you've created in the past for COVID-19 Vaccinations however you must change the specialty to select 'COVID-19 and Flu Vaccinations'. An example of this, can be seen below:
Select the Consultation Room of the Co-Administration Service of the same name.
Select the 'COVID-19 and Flu Vaccinations' under the specialty to begin creating a schedule for Co-Administration Vaccinations.
Following these selections, you can then create your schedules as normal - you can read more about how to do this in our Help Centre article, How to Manage Availability in Calendar.
Once this schedule is created, you will see the schedule for COVID-19 and Flu Vaccinations appear in that Consultation Room.
