The AWARDS Medical module Immunizations feature is an optional database enhancement that enables users to maintain, and view reports of, client immunization information.
NOTE: Immunizations information can also be accessed from within individual client face sheets if the face sheet has been configured to allow users to do so. Please keep in mind that any changes made to immunization info via the Medical module are reflected within the face sheet, and vice versa.
Because the Immunizations feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested, it is turned on behind-the-scenes in AWARDS for individual program types. (Contact the Help Desk to provide access to specific types of programs in your AWARDS database.)
Staff in programs of the types for which the Immunizations feature has been turned on must have the following permissions in order to use it:
Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Medical Button
Display Chart Records Profile Button (optional - to work with immunization info from within client face sheets if the face sheet has been configured to allow it)
NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature. If you do not have access to that feature and need a permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.
