Vaccine 2D Barcode Scanning Implementation Toolkit

The Vaccine 2D Barcode Scanning Implementation Toolkit is a series of resources and tools that may support different aspects of vaccine 2D barcode scanning implementation in ambulatory clinics, health care facilities, pharmacies, and health systems. Resources were developed for various roles of the implementation team and for various phases of implementation. The following resources are listed in the order they may be referenced during implementation. Navigate to the resources or tools that best fit your needs.
