ImmTrac is the Texas immunization registry, a free service of the Texas Department of State Health Services. It is a secure, confidential registry that stores your child’s immunization information electronically, in one centralized database.
Only authorized professionals such as doctors, nurses, and public health providers can access your child’s vaccination history. Schools and licensed child care facilities can also access this database. ImmTrac allows you to request your child’s shot record anytime, at no cost.
ImmTrac is a great high-tech tool that helps parents and doctors ensure that children are vaccinated on time. It can also help avoid unnecessary vaccinations. If your child changes doctors or schools, their immunization history remains conveniently available in ImmTrac.
But ImmTrac is not just for children! If you are over 18, you can register your immunization history for life. Universities, colleges, and vocational schools require students to be current on immunizations. Immunization records are also often required for jobs, including health-care, emergency services, military, and many other careers.
NOTE: If you were registered as a child, you must sign an adult consent form when you turn 18 for your record to continue to be kept in the immunization registry. If this consent form is not signed by your 19th birthday, your immunization record will be deleted from ImmTrac.
