Answer: A. A parent’s signature acknowledging receipt of the VIS sheet or that it has been explained to them.
Many physician offices still routinely get a parent’s signature for consent for medical malpractice protection, but it is not required by federal law. Some states require a signature. Other things that need to be recorded per federal law include the vaccine manufacturer and lot number of the vaccine used.
