VIS Code Updates
VIS codes are created to enable provider systems to implement VIS scanning and to help automate capture of the specific VIS document edition given to the recipient or caregiver. VIS codes may be published in advance of the actual VIS document publication, but they are only in effect and useable starting on the edition date of the VIS. The URLs included in the code set will not point to the new edition until the VIS document edition date.
This release includes the following VIS related code additions:
- One new VIS document edition dated 06/30/2022 for “Ebola Vaccine VIS”. This is the first edition of a new VIS.
In the code set files, the following has been added for the new VIS:
- CVX Code 204, “Ebola Zaire vaccine, live, recombinant, 1mL dose” has been associated to this new VIS
Note: (*) VIS Document Type Descriptions in the VIS vaccine code set may not be exactly the same as the final published VIS document title.
