What Is a Hepatitis B VIS?

Q:
What Is a Hepatitis B VIS?

A:
A VIS short for Vaccine Information Statement is a document produced by CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). It informs the vaccine recipients about the benefits and risks of a vaccine they are receiving.

A proper VIS must be given before the vaccination, and must be given before each dose of a multi-dose series.

There are several ways for you to get VISs:

  • View and display the web page
  • Download and print the PDF file
  • Import the RTF (text) file into an electronic system
  • View on a smartphone, tablet or other web-accessible mobile device
