Vaccine Information Statements - Vaccine Information
The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) creates Vaccine Information Statements
(VISs), which have details about most vaccines given in the United
States. The VISs are updated when needed.
The information in these statements does not change often.
Each VIS explains why to get the vaccine, the risks from the vaccine, what to do if you or your child has a moderate or severe reaction, and more.
If you have any
questions about a vaccine, see the CDC website www.cdc.gov/vaccines, or talk to your doctor.
