Will there be a vaccine information statement to give out to patients?

Vaccine Information Statements (VISs) are required by law for licensed vaccines that are added to the Vaccine Injury Table, as determined by the CDC. Optional VISs may be produced for other licensed vaccines that have not been added to the Vaccine Injury Table.  Plans for developing a VIS for the COVID-19 vaccine are not known at this time but will be communicated as additional information becomes available.

Additional information on VISs is located on the CDC’s website.

Once a vaccine is approved through the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) authority, product-specific EUA fact sheets for COVID-19 vaccination providers will be made available and will include information on the specific vaccine product and instructions for use. EUA fact sheets for vaccine recipients will also be developed. Both types of EUA fact sheets will be made available on the FDA and the CDC websites.

Vaccination providers will be required to provide these fact sheets to recipients of the vaccine and should document this was provided.

News & Knowledge
All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
