An Immunization Activity describes immunization substance administrations that have
actually occurred or are intended to occur. Immunization Activities in "INT" mood
are reflections of immunizations a clinician intends a patient to receive. Immunization
Activities in "EVN" mood reflect immunizations actually received. An Immunization Activity
is very similar to a Medication Activity with some key differentiators. The drug code
system is constrained to CVX codes. Administration timing is less complex. Patient
should be captured. All vaccines administered should be fully documented in the patient's
permanent medical record. Healthcare providers who administer vaccines covered by
Childhood Vaccine Injury Act are required to ensure that the permanent medical record
of the recipient indicates:
1) Date of administration 2) Vaccine manufacturer 3) Vaccine lot number 4) Name and title of the person who administered the vaccine and the address of the
clinic or facility where the permanent record will reside 5) Vaccine information statement (VIS) a. date printed on the VIS b. date VIS given to patient or parent/guardian.
This information should be included in an Immunization Activity when available.

In "INT" (intent) mood, the repeatNumber defines the number of allowed administrations.
For example, a repeatNumber of "3" means that the substance can be
administered up to 3 times. In "EVN" (event) mood, the repeatNumber is the number
of occurrences. For example, a repeatNumber of "3" in a dispense act means that the
dispensation is the 3rd. A repeatNumber of "3" in a substance administration event
means that the current administration is the 3rd in a series.
