Vaccine-preventable diseases continue to threaten the lives of people around the world. Vaccinations protect you now and in the future by preventing diseases that can sometimes kill or permanently injure. The schedule of shots that is necessary for you/your child to stay healthy and attend school, daycare, camp and university becomes more complicated with every new vaccine development. It is important that you keep track of the shots that you/your child have received.
Immunization registries like the Colorado Immunization Information System, or CIIS, are one of the best tools we can use to ensure that we all receive the shots we need in order to be protected from harmful diseases. As families and individuals move in and out of public and private healthcare systems across Colorado, you and your healthcare provider can use CIIS as a powerful tool to ensure that you/your child receive the immunizations you need to stay healthy and happy.

A patient may request copies of their immunization record by completing a Request to Release Immunization Record Form (accessed in various languages through the link below), having it notarized, and submitting it to the Colorado Immunization Information System, along with a legible photocopy of their driver's license or other secure and verifiable document.
Prior to completing the form, please call the CIIS Help Desk at 303-692-2437 or 1-888-611-9918 to confirm that the requested record exists in the Colorado Immunization Information System.
