11.7 Resource Immunization - Content

Public Health and Emergency Response icon Work GroupMaturity Level: 3 Trial UseSecurity Category: Patient Compartments: Patient, Practitioner

Describes the event of a patient being administered a vaccine or a record of an immunization as reported by a patient, a clinician or another party.

The Immunization resource is intended to cover the recording of current and historical administration of vaccines to patients across all healthcare disciplines in all care settings and all regions. This includes immunization of both humans and animals but does not include the administration of non-vaccine agents, even those that may have or claim to have immunological effects. While the terms "immunization" and "vaccination" are not clinically identical, for the purposes of the FHIR resources, the terms are used synonymously.

Additionally, the Immunization resource is expected to cover key concepts related to the creation, revision and querying of a patient's immunization history. This resource - through consultation with the Public Health work group - is believed to meet key use cases and information requirements as defined in the existing HL7 v2 icon immunization implementation guide, HL7 v3 icon POIZ domain and Immunization Domain Analysis Model.

Administration of vaccines is intended to be handled using the Immunization resource. MedicationAdministration is intended for tracking the administration of non-vaccine medications. Some systems treat immunizations in the same way as any other medication administration. Such systems SHOULD use an immunization resource to represent these. If systems need to use a MedicationAdministration resource to capture vaccinations for workflow or other reasons, they SHOULD also expose an equivalent Immunization instance.

While the Immunization and MedicationAdministration resources are distinct, they are both able to capture specific details of the administered product. The Immunization resource uses Immunization.vaccineCode to indicate the nature of the vaccine administered to the patient. The Immunization.administeredProduct may additionally be used to identify the specific product used (either as a coded value or as a reference to a Medication resource). The Immunization resource also contains data about the administered vaccine including the manufacturer, lot number and expiration date. However, the data elements contained within Immunization are expected to only be used when Immunization.administeredProduct does not reference a Medication resource which contains the same information about the product.

Similarly, MedicationAdministrative.medication references a Medication resource which is used to identify the administered product. Medication.marketingAuthorizationHolder, Medication.batch.lotNumber and Medication.batch.expirationDate are all analogous to the Immunization resource elements and are similarly used to capture details of the administered product.

Immunization.reaction may be an indication of an allergy or intolerance. If this is deemed to be the case, a separate AllergyIntolerance resource instance should be created to indicate it, as most systems will not query against past Immunization.reaction.

Some workflows may require documenting that specific educational materials were presented to the patient (or other responsible party) at the time of or before the immunization event. Conveyance of this information should be accomplished using the Communication resource. This resource can be linked to an Immunization resource and indicate the timing and nature of the educational material provided. The Communication resource may be a standalone resource or may be contained within the Immunization resource as appropriate. Feedback on this approach is welcome.

PathDefinitionTypeReference
Immunization.status

The value set to instantiate this attribute should be drawn from a terminologically robust code system that consists of or contains concepts to support describing the current status of the administered dose of vaccine.

RequiredImmunizationStatusCodes
Immunization.statusReason

The value set to instantiate this attribute should be drawn from a terminologically robust code system that consists of or contains concepts to support describing the reason why a dose of vaccine was not administered. This value set is provided as a suggestive example.

ExampleImmunizationStatusReasonCodes
Immunization.vaccineCode

This identifies the vaccine substance administered - CVX codes.

ExampleVaccineAdministeredValueSet
Immunization.informationSource

The value set to instantiate this attribute should be drawn from a terminologically robust code system that consists of or contains concepts to support describing the source of the data when the report of the immunization event is not based on information from the person, entity or organization who administered the vaccine. This value set is provided as a suggestive example.

ExampleImmunizationOriginCodes
Immunization.site

The value set to instantiate this attribute should be drawn from a terminologically robust code system that consists of or contains concepts to support describing the body site where the vaccination occurred. This value set is provided as a suggestive example.

ExampleCodesForImmunizationSiteOfAdministration
