USCDI defines this as “the record of an administration of a vaccination or a record of a vaccination as reported by a patient, a clinician, or another party.” The HL7 Event code DE Immunization Status addresses a single visit that is fulfilled by the following value set: • completed • entered-in-error • not-done The last valid value “not-done” might benefit from having a reason why not done and offering ‘entered-in-error’ as one of the reasons. The expanded valid values in the HL7 Immunization Status Reason Codes for the reason immunization not performed does not capture most reasons why the patient might have declined the vaccine. The CDC message mapping guide (MMG) for case notifications uses a larger value set as seen in this here.   Additionally, the USCDI Immunization Data Class does not capture critical information regarding a vaccine series or booster status which are available in immunization registries. MMGs with vaccine information captures a patient’s vaccine history including booster shots, dose number, and whether a series was completed by the appropriate date.  These vaccine data elements used by CDC for case notification include: • Vaccine Dose Number • Vaccine Manufacturer • Vaccine Lot Number • Vaccine Expiration Date We recommend assessing if more information such as boosters and additional series information can be captured to fulfill a more complete use case for Immunization Status. The other DEs from this data class are compatible with the current DEs CDC requests for case notifications.  This field is for general comments on this specific data class.
