HD Fluzone Risk Mitigation Strategies


I am wondering what other institutions/health systems are using for risk mitigation strategies with HD Fluzone due to the risk with two (2) syringes being in a single packet and administration to a single patient?

To date we are formulating a Nursing Safety Alert, but no other strategies have been implemented. Are other sites using CPOE warnings, Pyxis Alerts, unpackaging the doses, etc?

All input appreciated.

Thank you,
