Vaccines CVX And VIS Mapping

$179 / year

The Vaccines CVX And Vaccines Information Statement (VIS) Mapping dataset show the relationship between the vaccine’s CVX codes and the VIS codes.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC develops and maintains CVX codes, generic codes for vaccines, and codes for Vaccine Information Statements (VIS). This CVX-VIS mapping dataset shows the relationship between the vaccine’s CVX codes and the VIS codes.
This table is intended as a guide; the decision of which VIS to give for a vaccine is determined by the immunization provider.

CVX codes are codes that indicate the product used in a vaccination.
CDC has added two-dimensional (2D) “data matrix” barcodes to Vaccine Information Statements (VIS). This technology is designed primarily to help immunization providers record information about the VIS as is required by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA).
The 2D barcoded VIS allows providers to scan the name and edition date of a VIS into an electronic medical record (EMR), IIS, or other electronic database.

Note: A new vaccine for Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant), Adjuvanted (CVX 189) recently entered the vaccine supply chain. CVX 189 is now mapped to the existing Hepatitis B Vaccine VIS (edition date – 7/20/2016). Please note that in this dataset, the CVX Vaccine Description is “HepB-CpG,” while in the Vaccines CVX And MVX Mapping dataset, the CVX Short Description is currently “Hep B, adjuvanted”. The change to “HepB-CpG” reflects the standard notation used by the ACIP (LOOK FOR THE MEANING OF THIS ABBREVIATION). The Short Description in the CVX dataset will be changed to “HepB-CpG” in late June 2018.

VIS_Edition_StatusIndicates whether the VIS represented by each row is the current, or a past, edition. When a VIS is updated, a new barcode must be generated to reflect the new edition date. Both current and historical codes will be maintained in the VIS Lookup Table. While edition dates will change over time, the VIS GDTI document code will remain the same.stringenum : Array required : 1
