Immunization registries are confidential, computerized information systems that provide a single source of immunization records for children. Information is entered at birth through a linkage with electronic birth records or at first contact with the health care system.
Immunization registries are essential for maintaining high immunization rates. High-risk areas of the community can be identified to prevent or contain disease outbreaks. With record-low disease, registry information is important for reminding parents of the importance of timely immunization.
Provider participation is important. The usefulness of registries is directly proportional to the level of participation by providers and patients. To be fully successful, all health care providers, both public and private, must actively participate.
