Immunization Information Systems are a useful way to record, track, and manage your patients’ immunizations. Each state has a unique immunization information system, or immunization registry and not all are built to track adult immunizations. To find information on your state’s immunization registry visit the CDC’s Immunization Information Systems State/Territory/City Contacts page.

Immunization Information Systems Brochure for healthcare providers
Developed by the National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit, this customizable brochure is meant to encourage healthcare providers with adult patients to onboard and use IIS. It aims to create awareness among these healthcare providers about “what’s in it for them” when they document the immunizations they give to their adult patients in their state’s registry.
This “customizable” brochure allows any state or city health department to insert their own name and logo into the brochure. The brochure is a product of many inputs, including feedback from many IIS managers and a review of the currently available state-specific websites and promotional brochures. It also includes feedback from the IIS sentinel sites when they visited CDC in Atlanta in August 2015.
