All vaccine providers, public or private, are required by the National Vaccine Childhood Injury Act - NCVIA - 42 U.S.C. Part 300aa-26-2 pages) to give the appropriate VIS to the patient or parent or legal representative prior to every dose of specific vaccines.

The appropriate VIS must be given prior to the vaccination, and must be given prior to each dose of a multi-dose series. It must be given regardless of the age of the recipient.
