Immunizations

Immunizations contains data that documents the administration of vaccines, toxoids, and immunoglobulins and skin testing with the goal of protecting susceptible patients from preventable diseases. Skin tests are administered to diagnose certain types of disease with the goal of treatment and prevention of transmission. Data includes a descriptive name and dosage for each immunization and skin test, the manufacturer, lot number, date/time of administration, site of immunization, associated codes, number in a series, contraindication/reaction and documentation of refusal information. Data is used in clinical practice as part of primary prevention services. Skin test data is similar to immunization data but also includes post observation results. The data is also used to measure quality of care and is reported to outside entities interested in health promotion and disease prevention and/or health surveillance.
