Quick start: This topic provides a high level overview of the steps required to quickly complete the task. For detailed instructions, refer to the comprehensive help topic Recording immunizations and injections.

  1. Click the button to add a new injection:

    • From an encounter: In the Injections section of an encounter, click +Add Injection.

    • Outside of an encounter: From the patient’s chart, choose Start/Open > Injections and click +New Injection.

    • In Summary view, click the + icon beside the Injections folder.

  2. In the New Injection window, start typing the name of the injection in the Name field.

    • If the injection exists in the clinic-wide list, select it from the list of matching injections. The Type will auto-populate.

    • If the injection does not exist in the list, type the full name in the Name field and select the Type of injection (Allergy, Immunization, Injection, Other).
