This is a value set defined by the FHIR project.


Defining URL:http://hl7.org/fhir/ValueSet/immunization-status-reason
Title:Immunization Status Reason Codes

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.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
