  • Vaccine Nomenclature Update
As of September 19, 2023, a change in the syntax for vaccines will be live in Connect Care. This change is intended to make it easier for prescribers to identify and order the correct vaccine to be administered.

The updated syntax will appear as follows: <"(Vaccine code)"><Vaccine name/Description><suffix (where applicable)><Strength><"vaccine"><Brand name><form name>. For example:
  • Old syntax: diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (dTap) combined vaccine (Boostrix) injection
  • New syntax: (dTap) diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis vaccine (Boostrix) Syringe
