New resource - Injection site reactions information sheet

Injection site reactions (ISRs) are a common adverse event following immunisation, but they are often confused with cellulitis. Healthcare providers tend to prescribe antibiotics for ISRs, which are unnecessary.

NCIRS has developed an information sheet to help providers differentiate between ISRs and cellulitis and how to manage ISRs.

Access the information sheet here under Clinical resources.
