Vaccine Information Statements (VIS)
VISs are information sheets produced by the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The handouts explain
the benefits and risks of a vaccine. Statements are available for
most vaccines and in many languages. Federal
law requires that VISs be handed out whenever (before each
dose) certain vaccinations are given.
