Statewide Immunization Information System

Immunization registries are confidential, computerized information systems that provide a single source of immunization records for children, entered at birth through a linkage with electronic birth records or at the first contact with the health care provider. If your physician participates,every time your child receives an immunization it will be entered into the system. IMPACT SIIS is Ohio's Statewide Immunization Information System.

"One in five children in the U.S. receive at least one unnecessary dose of vaccine by the age of two, wasting $26.5 million in vaccine costs each year!"
