Vaccine Information Statements in English and 40 languages

Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) are information sheets produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). By federal law, you must provide current VISs whenever certain vaccinations are given.

Your Immunization Record May Not Look Complete

There may be some vaccines you or your family received that don’t appear on the immunization record in MyIR, such as the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. HPV vaccine is sometimes given by a healthcare provider confidentially. Since MyIR doesn’t know which HPV vaccines were given confidentially or not, all HPV vaccinations are hidden on immunization records in MyIR. Contact your healthcare provider if you think you need a more complete record of your or your family’s immunization history.
