Vaccine Situation Statement
March 30th, 2016
In response to the recent vaccine situation in China, ParkwayHealth would like to assure our patients that all our clinics follow a strict process and workflow for vaccines transport, procurement, and inoculation that ensures the safety of vaccine recipients.
The vaccines that ParkwayHealth carries are transported by qualified professionals trained by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and equipment used for procurement and transportation is in accordance with national requirements and standards.
Vaccines carried in ParkwayHealth clinics are only sourced from state-approved manufacturers and are verified against World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines on permitted immunization standards.
Once vaccines arrive in the clinics, they are stored in temperature controlled environments with 24-hour system monitoring. Our Pharmacy staff also performs temperature checks twice per day and monthly audits to ensure that Chinese CDC protocols for handling any damaged or expired vaccines are strictly followed.
ParkwayHealth will continue to provide the best quality of care by following the regulatory requirements and national standards.
