  • Description:
    1. Provide a Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) when a vaccination is given -- 2. Record information for each VIS provided.

    As required under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (42 U.S.C. §300aa-26), all health care providers in the United States who administer, to any child or adult, any of the following vaccines — diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), trivalent influenza, pneumococcal conjugate, meningococcal, rotavirus, human papillomavirus (HPV), or varicella (chickenpox) — shall, prior to administration of each dose of the vaccine, provide a copy to keep of the relevant current edition vaccine information materials that have been produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

    • to the parent or legal representative of any child to whom the provider intends to administer such vaccine, or

    • to any adult to whom the provider intends to administer such vaccine.

    If there is not a single VIS for a combination vaccine, use the VISs for all component vaccines.

    VISs should be supplemented with visual presentations or oral explanations as appropriate.
