IIS: HL7 Standard Code Set
Mapping CVX to Vaccine Groups

receive email updates when changes are made to this pageGet Email Updates

A variety of vaccines can be used to vaccinate against a specific disease in fulfillment of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) schedule. Multiple individual vaccines that can be used to vaccinate against a disease are grouped into a Vaccine Group (sometimes known as vaccine family), and in many cases these groups represent vaccines that vaccinate against a single disease. In a few cases they represent vaccines that vaccinate against more than one disease, but are grouped together because clinicians have thought of them as a unit.

CVX codes are codes that indicate the product used in a vaccination. MVX codes are codes that indicate the manufacturer of a vaccine. These codes are maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Immunization Information System Support Branch (IISSB) for use in HL7 data transmission.

The goal of the table is to support mapping of CVX to vaccine groups.

Note : “uncertain formulation CVX” is the CVX code to be used if the specific formulation is not known.

Questions regarding this table should be directed to the IIS Technical Assistance Team(or use mailing address).
