From the NYC Department of Health:
Parents, guardians, and individuals are now able to access the Citywide Immunization Registry (CIR) via a new public website, My Vaccine Record. From this site, members of the public will be able to view and print their own and/or their children’s CIR record. Access is being rolled out initially only for holders of the New York City identification card, IDNYC, which all New York City residents can apply for online at www.nyc.gov/IDNYC.
Individuals will be able to access a child’s CIR record only if his or her name is recorded in the CIR as the child’s parent, guardian, next of kin or primary contact. Consequently, we urge you to make sure that this information is correct in the CIR. If the parent, guardian, next of kin or primary contact’s name does not match the information in the CIR, then they will not be able to access the record. Health care providers may add or update this information through their electronic health record, or by entering the “Primary Contact” information in the “Update Patient Info” tab in the CIR’s Online Registry web application (www.nyc.gov/health/cir).
Attached is information as to how a member of the public can search for a record in the CIR. This information can also be accessed at www.nyc.gov/health/myvaccinerecord.
For questions on access to My Vaccine Record or any other vaccine-related issue, please contact (347) 396-2400 or email email@example.com. Thank you for keeping NYC children safe from vaccine-preventable diseases.
