MEDPROS Immunization Module The Immunization Tracking System Main Menu, or “FRM” screen is the portal that allows you to perform all tasks related to posting Immunizations and exceptions for an individual or by mass updates; creating or updating Immunization Profiles; selecting, creating or updating Task Forces; querying the DEERS data base for immunizations posted in other Services tracking systems; and mass updating Smallpox reactions
Posting an Individual Shot Record To post immunizations to an individual shot record, tab to the SSN Field on this screen and type the soldier’s SSN, then tab to the underscore to the left of the FRK, Post Individual Shot Record line, type an “S” and press the Enter key.
Posting an Individual Shot Record The first line is the personnel data identifying that particular soldier, to include their SSN, Name, Rank, Military Personnel Code (MPC), and assigned Unit Identification Code or UIC. The second thru fifth lines on this screen are used by the MEDPROS data entry person to post new immunization to an individual soldier’s record.. The bottom portion of this screen, below the ***Immunization Record*** line, will show all of the immunizations currently posted on the soldier’s MEDPROS Record. This portion of the record displays the Immunization name, Type code, date the immunization was given, date the next immunization in that series is due, the lot number, zip code where it was administered, and the ordering Physician or Physician’s Assistant. When this screen is full, a new screen (accessible by pressing the F8, Page Down” key) will appear. Records of career soldiers may have several pages of immunizations, but you can only view twelve at time. They are listed alphabetically by shot name, then chronologically with the most recent immunization listed at the top.
Posting an Individual Shot Record To post an immunization to an individual’s shot record: Tab to the underscore to the right of the NEW SHOT-TYPE CODE and type in the three letter code for the immunization given. Your cursor should move to the underscore under the “U” on next line. Type an “A” (for add) in that field (your cursor should move to the blank field under the date (CCYYMMDD) Type in the date the immunization was given (not the date it is being posted, the system will automatically create that date). Your cursor should automatically move to the MANU (Manufacturer) field. Type in the Manufacturer’s code, determined by looking at the vaccine vial and looking up the code from the table. You must then tab to the Lot # field. Type in the Lot Number of the Vaccine given (taken from the packaging or vaccine vial. Tab four times to move your cursor to the ZIP/APO field. Type in the Zip Code or APO code where the vaccination was given (not where it is being recorded). Tab to the ORDER SSN field. CONTINUED ON NEXT SLIDE…
Posting an Individual Shot Record Type in the SSN of the Physician or PA directing the vaccine be administered. If the SSN is not know, type in nine zeroes in this field, then manually type in the Physician or Physician Assistants name in the PRD PHY/PA field. Tab to the ADMIN PROVIDER field. Type in the Rank and Name of the person administering the vaccination. Press the F% function key – this will automatically load the Dose and Route from the Immunization Specifications Table as well as the Physician/PA name from the personnel database if not previously manually typed in that field after entering all zeroes in the ORDER SSN field.
Posting an Individual Shot Record If the SSN entered matches one in the Army database identified as a Physician or PA, you will see the confirmation message similar to the one shown the under the screen name. If the SSN does not match (as would be the case if entering all zeroes and manually typed the name), you will see the message, “Warning – Not a military physician/PA” . To add the shot to the soldier’s record, type a “U” at the Command Prompt and press the enter key
Posting an Individual Shot Record Side 2 of the Immunization record retains all the information on the top portion of the screen, but adds different fields to the Immunization Record such as the Dose, Route, Vaccine Manufacturer, the Admin Provider, and the Logon ID/Recorders Name. Press F11 one more time to see additional information on Page 3 of the Immunization record.
Posting an Individual Shot Record Side 3 of the record provides data on reactions for the Smallpox Vaccination to include the type Reaction (Major, Equivocal, or None), the Zip Code where the reaction was read, and the date the reaction was read. You will learn more about posting Smallpox reactions in a separate module. In addition, since MEDPROS is fed immunization data from other systems, the Source field identifies the system where each vaccination was posted. In this example, most shots were posted directly into MODS, but the Influenza Shot was imported from MedBase, a immunization tracking system utilized at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
DELETING AN IMMUNIZATION IN MEDPROS To delete an immunization that was erroneously posted, type a “D” (for delete) to the left of that immunization in the Immunization Record section of the immunization record. Press the Home key to return to the Command Prompt. Type a “U” for Update and press the Enter key.
