ImmTrac, the Texas Immunization Registry, is a no-cost service offered by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). It is a secure and confidential registry available to all Texans. ImmTrac safely consolidates and stores immunization information from multiple sources electronically in one centralized system. Texas law requires written consent for ImmTrac participation and limits access to the registry to only those individuals who have been authorized by law. ImmTrac contains over 120 million immunization records and continues to rapidly grow with increased participation.
The immunization information in ImmTrac is provided by a variety of sources, including private health-care providers, pharmacies, public health clinics, Medicaid claims administrators, and the Vital Statistics Unit (VSU). Regardless of the number of sources, each client’s immunization information is consolidated into one electronic record. Authorized professionals such as doctors, nurses, and public health providers can access clients’ vaccination histories.
IMPORTANT: You may have registered in the past for your child's immunization records to be included in the ImmTrac registry. Texas law requires written consent for participation. When your child reaches the age of 18, a new consent form must be signed for the immunization records to remain in the ImmTrac registry. The Consent Form must be signed by the student and the student must be 18 years old. Without consent, the student's immunization records will not remain in the ImmTrac registry.
The completed form can be given to the school nurse or the Milam County Health Department.
