Are you still providing hard copy Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) handouts with every vaccination?

In the past, healthcare providers and public health entities interpreted federal law as a requirement that a paper copy of each VIS had to be handed to the recipient prior to vaccination, and that the recipient must take this copy away with him or her following the vaccination.

The evolution of electronic media has resulted in broadening of this interpretation.  Check the CDC website for more ways to provide this important information to your patients and their families.
