  • Documenting Vaccination

In the past, CDC has recommended to only accept patient-reported history for influenza and pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines. Is the recommendation to not accept a patient-reported history of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine?

ACIP’s “General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization” still states that a patient’s undocumented history can generally be accepted as proof of vaccination only for influenza and pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccines. See the Adult Vaccination section at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/general-recs/programs.html.
