It exists evidence about the potential role of immunization information systems to improve coverage.

The Vaccine Information System is a comprehensive information system that allows the management of vaccination programs. It is connected to other systems so that decisions related to vaccinations as clinical and epidemiological management is facilitated. Regarding the role in improving vaccination coverage, the Vaccine Information System facilitates the implementation of all alternatives that have been proven effective: calculate coverage and feedback of results, active recruitment, cooperate with the epidemiological surveillance and logistics management of vaccines.
