Setting Contraindications in the Registry


The CHILD Profile Immunization Registry allows you to set a contraindication on a patient vaccination record.  In the registry, a contraindication is an umbrella term that includes precautions, exemptions, immune status, as well as true contraindications. Examples of contraindication reasons you can select are:  history of disease (for chickenpox), laboratory evidence of immunity, or parent refusal.  At this time, the only contraindication that helps to improve your immunization rates, if measured with registry data, is a history of chickenpox. 


To set a Contraindication for chickenpox, follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to the patient’s Vaccination View/Add screen
  2. Scroll down below the “Add Administered” button to find the “Contraindication” button
  3. Click on the “Contraindication” button
  4. Follow the prompts to select Varicella: select the vaccine, select the reason – parent or patient report of disease, check the permanent box, add an approximate date of disease if known
  5. Click the “Add Contraindication” button


Once completed, the screen will refresh immediately and display the added information. To remove the Contraindication, click the “Delete” b
