Multi-, Routine-, & Non-Routine-Vaccine VISs

Multi

  • Multiple Vaccines (DTaP, Hib, Hepatitis B, Polio, and PCV13) (10/22/14) [Interim] UPDATED
    This VIS may be used in place of the individual VISs for DTaP, Hib, Hepatitis B, Polio, and PCV13 when two or more of these vaccines are administered during the same visit. It may be used for infants through children receiving their routine 4-6 year vaccines.

Non-routine

Updated VISs Ready in August

Updated VISs for both inactivated and live influenza vaccines are in the final stages of clearance and should be available in early to mid-August. A new VIS for meningococcal B vaccines is due for release at the same time. Until the meningococcal B VIS is available, providers may use any means – verbal or written – to inform patients about the vaccine. Do not defer a vaccine dose because no VIS is available.

What are VISs?

Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) are information sheets produced by the CDC that explain both the benefits and risks of a vaccine to vaccine recipients.

Federal law requires that healthcare staff provide a VIS to a patient, parent, or legal representative before each dose of certain vaccines.
