The Mississippi Child Immunization Act of 1994 established a centralized registry to be operated by the Department of Health for health care providers to report all childhood immunizations given in the state. The goal of the Mississippi State Department of Health, Immunization Program is to insure that accurate and valid immunization data is available to health care providers, parents, and others who have a legitimate and tangible interest in immunization information.

How the Registry works
Registry entries are submitted from private and public health care providers. If you receive an immunization from one of our public health clinics, it is recorded for you in the Registry. If you receive an immunization from a private physician who participates in this program, your immunization will also be automatically recorded.
Whom we register
The Immunization Registry operates statewide in all 105 public health clinics throughout nine districts. We currently have approximately 600,000 clients on file and five and a half million shot records. The target age groups consist of two, 0-2 years of age and the extended group of 0-18 years of age.
Finding immunization records
Information in the Registry is currently used primarily by public health clinics. Private providers, parents, legal guardians, daycare operators, and school nurses can call (601) 576-7751 to obtain immunization histories on children. A fax line is also available to address inquiries for information. Please call our Immunization Office for more details.
