Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) -- Polio Vaccine: What You Need to Know

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) educates people about the Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV). It provides facts about polio and explains why people should be vaccinated for it. It provides an IPV dosage schedule for children by age and discusses vaccination for certain adults who are at higher risk. The VIS identifies who should not get the vaccine, discusses risks and side effects, and explains what to look for and what to do in the event of a severe allergic reaction, such as reporting the problem to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Contact information for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is provided, along with tips for how people can learn more about the IPV.

The English-language VIS was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The translations are provided by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and its partner organizations.
