This training addresses how to accurately document vaccinations after administration as required by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA). Vaccine doses should be documented in both a medical record and immunization information system (IIS). Proper documentation using an IIS can help consolidate vaccination records for patients, lessen the possibility that patients will receive unnecessary doses of vaccines, and provide data for calculating a practice’s vaccination coverage. Health care providers should also give patients, parents, and/or guardians a personal vaccination record that includes the names and dates of vaccines administered.
