Vaccine Information Statements (VISs)

MAKE YOUR EHR or IIs WORK FOR YOU

You can leverage your EHR (Electronic Health Record system) to help with vaccine assessments, vaccine reminders and recalls, and vaccine documentation.

Immunization Information Systems (IIS), also known as immunization registries, are confidential, community-wide, computerized databases that record vaccines administered by participating healthcare professionals. You can use IIS to help with vaccine assessment, reminder/recall, clinical decision support, and vaccine documentation. IIS also have the capacity to electronically exchange data with clinical systems including EHRs (Electronic Health Records). Many states now have a lifetime IIS, which includes vaccination records for people of all ages.

10 Ways to Create a Culture of Immunization Within Our Pediatric Practice

https://assets-global.website-files.com/5b5b58a02a0eac05dd8c32d3/5c27e2dc3c78e54161904574_creating-culture-of-IZ-in-your-practice-508.pptx
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

All staff in pediatric practices, including non-clinical staff, play an important role in supporting parents in their vaccine decisions. This document provides concrete ways your practice can encourage immunizations during well-child visits, from check-in to check-out. It is intended for use by physicians and vaccine coordinators during staff meetings and/or at lunch-and-learn presentations. You may customize it with your own slide template, logo, and practice-specific information.
