Monthly Accountability Reporting:

  • Temperature Reporting: Providers enrolled in the Adult Vaccine Program are required to submit temperature logs monthly in Redcap through the provider portal. On the 1st of each month, a link to upload temperature logs will be sent to the primary and backup vaccine coordinator(s) at each facility via an automated email from WAAdultVaccines@doh.wa.gov.  This link will be the same every month, so it can be bookmarked and saved in the browser.
