National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA)
New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS)
The New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS) is a confidential, computerized system that contains immunization records and allows authorized users access to a person's shot record. Franklin County Public Health strongly encourages participation in NYSIS because your healthcare provider can use NYSIIS to be sure that you receive the needed immunizations and proper medical treatment is received when needed; and the system creates a permanent and easily accessible record of your immunizations. Participation in NYSIIS is for people older than 19 is voluntary and confidential, so you consent is needed. If at any time after consenting you wish to withdraw from the system, you will need to sign a consent form. Records of immunizations received by NYSIIS with your consent will remain in NYSIIS; however, information about any future immunizations will not be recorded.
The Statewide Immunization Registry Law requires your child's doctor to record any immunizations given to your child into NYSIIS. Your child's immunization record will include past and future immunizations until your child has turned 19 years old. This record will be kept secure and private and only those parties authorized by the NYS Department of Health will have access to NYSIIS. You may get a copy of your child's immunization record from your child's doctor or your local health department.
