IIS: HL7 Standard Code Set
MVX - Manufacturers of Vaccines

The CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) developed and maintains HL7 Table 0227, Manufacturers of Vaccines (MVX). The table below is the most up to date value set for this table. It includes both active and inactive manufacturers of vaccines in the US. Inactive MVX codes allow transmission of historical immunization records. When MVX code is paired with a CVX (vaccine administered) code, the specific trade named vaccine may be indicated.

The Status column indicates if the manufacturer is currently making vaccine for distribution in the United States. The Last Updated column indicates the last time this particular manufacturer code was updated in this table.

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

Sort Table by Column: Simply click on the column heading to sort the table accordingly.
