The West Virginia Statewide Immunization Information System (WVSIIS) helps ensure that all West Virginia children, adolescents and adults have current immunizations. These shots provide protection from diseases like measles, rotavirus, human papillomavirus, hepatitis and pertussis (whooping cough).
WVSIIS is a confidential, computerized information system that keeps complete and up-to-date shot records. You won't have to worry about losing your child's shot record even if you change providers. State law requires all providers to report all shots they administer to children under age 18 to WVSIIS within two weeks. Providers who use the reporting system are able to print reminders for those needing future vaccinations.
This same system can easily notify individuals of any missed vaccinations. Another benefit is that WVSIIS helps prevent unnecessary immunizations or revaccination by alerting providers prior to administering the shot(s). All shot records are protected the same as any other confidential medical record. Those who need a current shot record may simply ask their healthcare provider or local health department to print them a copy from WVSIIS during their next office visit.
Parents are encouraged to ask their child's doctor to review WVSIIS to ensure the shot record on file is accurate and complete. This step ensures that your child's shot record is never lost which prevents unnecessary or repeat vaccinations due to a lost record. Click here for more information on shot records.
