  • Documenting Vaccination

If my state has an Immunization Information System (IIS, or registry) do I still need to give the patient a vaccine record card?

Yes. Patient-held cards are an extremely important part of a person’s medical history. The person may move to another state or need medical care at a facility within or outside the state without access to the IIS in which their records are documented, and the personal record may be the only vaccination record available.
