Global Immunizations, Global or Local Requirements

Immunizations are always “global”. In other words they may be set for all locations at once. Other date based requirements, such as an annual physical, may be either “global” or “local”. If you have just a single location, the only difference is the order in which they appear. Global items appears before local ones on the child (or employee) Immunization & Requirements screen. If you have multiple locations you may “expose” global items to particular locations only, while local items are unique to their individual school.

Enter the appropriate number and click the small Save button.

    3. If this item is due three or more times, click the next (blank) line and choose the appropriate answer. The choices depend on how you set up the second occurrence. If you said at so many “months of age”, then any additional items must also be due at a specific age.
    4. If on the second item you said so many months later, for the third item you could choose so many “months later” or “every so many months”. This may be appropriate for a recurring physical.
