MAKE IMMUNIZATION INFORMATION SYSTEMS (IIS) WORK FOR YOU

Immunization Information Systems (IIS), also known as immunization registries, are confidential, community-wide, computerized databases that record vaccines administered by participating healthcare professionals. You can use IIS to help with vaccine assessment, reminder/recall, clinical decision support, and vaccine documentation. IIS also have the capacity to electronically exchange data with clinical systems including EHRs (Electronic Health Records). Learn more.
