Introduction: Immunization is an important importance to carry out a strategic action of Primary Health Care. Thus, the proper functioning of vaccination rooms in Primary Care is one of the most important strategies in the prevention and control of diseases in the Unified Health System (SUS), in this sense, getting to know the organization, executing and organizing related to the vaccination room, implications for the effectiveness of immunizations, a finding of successful or unsuccessful planning and formulations of more applied public policies that do not compromise routine vaccination.

Objective: To build a flow chart of vaccine room attendance in a Basic Health Unit.

Methods: A tool was built and applied in a Basic Health Unit in São Luis/MA. The creation took place from the experience in the vaccine room and readings from the Immunization Manual of the Ministry of Health. Thus, a flowchart of steps in the process of the path to be taken by the user was created. After creating the step by step, start the process of training professionals in the vaccine room to understand the work process.

Results: The tool allowed a comparison between practice and theory, how the processes are carried out and how they can be, or will be, evidenced in the points where the rules are not being clear to health professionals.

Conclusion: The implantation of the tool helped in the assistance, identifying as possible local barriers, as peculiarities of the service and the number of insertion that allows the improvement of the reception of users in the vaccination rooms. In addition, it contributed to the planning and evaluation of the results of the assistance provided in the vaccination rooms of the Basic Health Unit.
