Two-Dimensional (2D) Vaccine Barcoding - For Providers
This page contains information and training resources for providers with an interest in 2D vaccine barcoding.
This guide Cdc-pdf[1.6 MB, 70 pages, 508] describes steps for healthcare organization decision makers considering implementation of 2D vaccine barcode (vials/syringes) scanning. Six implementation steps are included: decide, plan, train, assess, adjust, and sustain. This guide is based on the findings from the 2D Vaccine Barcode Scalability Pilot.
Some vaccine manufacturers for particular vaccines use similar, but different, lot numbers of the unit of sale vaccine product (package or salable box) and the unit of use vaccine product (vial/syringe). This brief Cdc-pdf[2 pages] describes the background, challenge, current tools, ongoing efforts, and plans to update information related to this issue.
This report was developed to provide guidance to aid organizations considering the use of 2D scanning to capture vaccine encounter information during pandemic events. See 2D Barcoded Vaccine Use in Pandemic Events Cdc-pdf[15 pages].
Although developed at the initiation of the 2D Vaccine Barcode Pilot project or after the start of the project to address ongoing challenges, most of the content of these materials address 2D barcoding issues beyond the scope of the pilot.
