Important Info

  • For more information on VISs, including frequently-asked questions, see these
    VIS Facts
  • All VISs on this page are current.
    A VIS with a date several years old is not necessarily out of date. VISs are not updated annually or on any other routine schedule. An updated VIS with a new date is posted when there is a change in recommendations.
  • New Hotline Number on VISs
    On March 15, 2005, the telephone number for the national immunization hotline changed. VISs posted on this web page contain the new number in the "How can I learn more?" section.

    Please replace your camera-ready copies of VISs with these new versions before reprinting.
Note: You do not need to discard your existing VIS stocks; calls made to the old hotline number will be forwarded to the new number. VIS dates have not changed. The new phone number is the only difference between the old VISs and the new ones.

Combination Vaccines:

If there is no VIS for a non-routine combination vaccine (e.g., Pediarix, Comvax, Twinrix), use the VISs for all component vaccines.
