How to Use VISs

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.
