Monthly Accountability Reporting:
- Temperature Reporting: Providers are required to submit monthly temperature logs to the Adult Vaccine Program at WAAdultVaccines@doh.wa.gov. Temperature logs are due the first week of the following month. If a provider is enrolled in the Adult Vaccine Program and Childhood Vaccine Program, and vaccines are stored in the same vaccine storage units, the provider does not need to send a duplicate temperature log to the Adult Vaccine Program.
- Inventory Reporting: Providers are required to submit an Inventory Report monthly through the Immunization Information System. Inventory reports are due the first week of each month. Previously, the program required quarterly reporting through a survey on the AVP webpage. This is no longer a requirement of the program.
