Can we accept immunizations given in another country?

Yes. you can accept all immunizations from other countries if they are documented and translated. 

Do patients have to sign consents before receiving vaccines?

No, signed consents are not required. However, federal law mandates the recording of certain information about each vaccination, e.g.; manufacturer, lot number, and the date of the Vaccine Information Statement(s). This information should be recorded in the patient’s chart.

Is participation in an immunization registry required?

Yes, with the passage of AB 1797, California healthcare providers who administer vaccines or/and offer TB tests will be required to enter:

  • Immunization information into the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) OR Healthy Futures/RIDE.
  • Race and ethnicity information for each patient in the immunization registry to support assessment of health disparities in immunization coverage.
  • TB test results
