ImmTrac2: All Your Shot Records in One Secure Place

ImmTrac2: All Your Shot Records in One Secure Place

Did you just enroll your kiddos in a new school or daycare? Is your college junior about to spend a semester studying abroad. Are you about to enlist in the military? Do you have a new primary care physician you need to bring up to speed on your medical history?

In every scenario, you’ll need to share your vaccine history. Given that daily life can be hectic, who has time to chase down their vaccine records from different pharmacies, clinics or care providers? Now you don’t have to.

A record of all the vaccines you and your family receive can be stored in one secure and convenient place — the ImmTrac2 Texas Immunization Registryleaving site icon 

What Is the Texas Immunization Registry?

ImmTrac 2 is a free service offered by the Texas Department of State Health Services. It keeps an electronic record of an individual’s shot history in one secure and convenient place. Every time a participant gets a vaccine, a record of it is immediately recorded in the registry by signing a one-time consent form.

Vaccine info is gathered from many sources, including:

  • Health care providers
  • Public health clinics
  • Women, Infants and Children (WIC) clinics
  • Medicaid claim administrators
  • Bureau of Vital Statistics
  • Texas Department of State Health Services

The registry is voluntary and confidential.
Parents and legal guardians can enroll children under the age of 18. After an enrolled child turns 18, they can choose to enroll as an adult or no longer participate. If your child elects not to enroll after their 18th birthday, their records will remain in the registry until they turn 26. 

While the registry is designed to update and store a person’s vaccine information, participants can opt-out at any time.

Who Can Access the Registry?

Doctors, nurses and other health care providers can check the registry as needed to see vaccine history. Private and public schools may be able to access the registry to verify vaccine status of their students.

See your vaccine history — anytime 24/7.
Want to know when your due for another Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) booster? Can’t remember if you’ve had three or four doses of the Hepatitis B vaccine? Wonder when your child should get their first HPV shot? The registry keeps track of everything for you.

With the most up-to-date info at your fingertips, you and your family won’t miss the vaccines you need, or get ones you don’t need. Being in the know eliminates the guessing, along with over and under immunization. Plus, it can help you all stay healthy and save money.

Get reminder notices sent directly to you.
If registered, your health care provider may send reminders through ImmTrac2 about specific vaccines you need. You can even print a copy of your vaccine record to easily show proof of vaccination at work and school — and to military personnel.
