Immunization records available online
The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is now offering a convenient way for parents to check their child’s immunizations record online and print out the required Certificate of Immunization Compliance (Form 121) for school registration.
MyIR Mobile, an internet-based portal, provides access to official state immunization records based on information housed in the Mississippi Immunization Information eXchange (MIIX). Users can not only see immunization records of their children, but also add family members to their profiles to track the vaccination status of all their children as they enter school. They can download the certified Form 121 for qualified students.
“Prior to this service, parents had to get the Form 121 from their pediatrician or healthcare provider," MSDH Director of Immunization Jennifer Fulcher noted. "This always caused a huge rush in the weeks leading up to the beginning of a new school year. This program will save time and save a trip to the doctor’s office or county health department.”
MyIR Mobile requires identity verification through a phone number or email address to keep records safe and secure. Only immunization records of Mississippi residents are accessible through the program. Mississippi is the first state in the U.S. that currently uses MyIR Mobile.
Mississippi state law requires children to be immunized against childhood diseases to enter public or private school, Head Start or daycare. There is also a vaccination requirement for seventh grade entry. MyIR Mobile is available at www.MyIRMobile.com. Immunizations are available at county health departments by appointment.
