What is the Virginia Immunization Information System (VIIS)?
In August 2006, the Virginia Department of Health’s Division of Immunization (VDH/DOI) implemented a free web-based immunization registry for public and private sectors statewide. VIIS is a secure, confidential, computerized database which contains vaccine information from participating facilities for individuals of all ages, which makes it a valuable public health tool for managing immunization records and supporting healthier communities. The purpose of the VIIS is to create an accurate immunization record for all Virginia patients. It is only accessible to authorized users of the VIIS system. VIIS records are treated with the same confidentiality and privacy as any other patient medical record and is HIPPA compliant. Find out more about VIIS here.

THE IMMUNIZATION COMMITTEE'S MISSION
The immunization committee of the Virginia Chapter of the Amercian Academy of Pediatrics is committed to fully immunizing Virginia children and adolescents against vaccine preventable diseases through advocacy, education, networking and communication of best practices.
Vaccinations have significantly decreased the number of cases of vaccine preventable diseases. Unfortunately, people continue to get sick and even die from these diseases every year. Even in Virginia, the number of cases of these preventable diseases has risen. Because of these concerning trends we have redoubled our efforts to educate all Virginians on the need and safety of vaccines.
The immunization committee is currently working to champion vaccines by becoming a key stakeholder in reforming a statewide immunization coalition, advocating for legislative and regulatory policies which optimize the immunization of the children of Virginia, and educating both the public and medical providers on current and future vaccines. We are always looking for partners in our efforts and welcome you to reach out to us!
