Community Vaccinators

Flu Vaccine Campaign Slogan

Considerations for Conducting Vaccination Clinics in Michigan  

As a community vaccinator in the State of Michigan, there are certain regulations and professional standards of practice you should be aware of. The State of Michigan follows the recommendations of the national Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). ACIP statements are official recommendations for the use of vaccines in the United States and are published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Be sure to read  Considerations for Conducting Vaccination Clinics in Michigan  before moving forward with your immunization clinics. 

Referral Posters for Pharmacies, Retail Stores, and Community Vaccinators Offering Flu Shots 

*These posters should be placed in all community vaccinator clinics, in order to refer those patients who are not being served (i.e., children under a certain age, pregnant women, elderly adults).  These patients need to be referred to their private provider or local health department (LHD).  A  map of LHDs  with contact information is available to assist in your efforts. 

Enter ALL Flu Vaccine Doses in the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) 

  • MCIR Website: 
  • MCIR is not just for children anymore.  Adolescent and adult information should be entered into MCIR to reduce gaps in the registry and to give a more accurate view of the total number of doses of flu vaccine administered in Michigan. 

Join the Flu Advisory Board (FAB)  to network with other vaccinators in your community. 

Sign up your clinic times and offerings with the Google Flu Clinic Locator:  Directions  are available at the American Lung Association website.
