Uniform Vaccine Administration Record
In medical practices that do not have barcode scanning systems, a Uniform Vaccine Administration Record (UVAR) form (PDF-278KB) was proposed. It includes most of the data already collected on existing immunization forms developed by various states and the American Academy of Pediatrics.*
This form would accept peel-off stickers from the vaccine vial as well as handwritten entry of vaccine identifying information if stickers are lost or unavailable. The form could serve as the provider's permanent, legal, medical record of the vaccination.
