How to draw up a vaccine or other injectable medication with Dr. Mike Tokiwa | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Videos

In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education video, Dr. Mike Tokiwa at Progressive Veterinary Care reviews how to draw up a vaccine or other injectable medication in your veterinary practice. This is a procedure veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and staff MUST feel comfortable performing, regardless of what type of practice you are in: general practice, shelter medicine, emergency, specialty practice... you name it! Whether it is drawing up vaccines versus antimicrobials or other pharmaceutical agents, this is a MUST to make sure patient care is medically correct and that medical errors do not occur! When in doubt, always confirm the product/drug you are drawing up, check the mg/ml concentration (if appropriate), and make sure the product is handled and labelled appropriately and correctly. And when it doubt, it's ok to use two hands (vs. one). For vaccines, one-handed technique is fine, but more importantly, make sure you've drawn up the medication/vaccine appropriately and correctly!
