Mission & Vision
The Georgia Immunization Registry is designed to collect and maintain accurate, complete and current vaccination records to promote effective and cost-efficient disease prevention and control. The
Georgia Immunization Registry law, passed in 1996 and expanded by House Bill 1526, requires reporting by " any person who administers a vaccine or vaccines licensed for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration to a person." Several options are available for submitting immunization records to the Registry. Georgia's immunization providers also have quick and easy access to immunization records on individuals and able to generate a variety of reports on their immunization status.
The goals of the Georgia Immunization Registry are:
- Assure that all persons in Georgia receive appropriate, timely immunizations to lead healthy, disease-free lives
- Assist providers and public health officials in reminding individuals when they or their children need or are past due for vaccination(s)
- Assist public health officials in assessing and improving community immunization status
- Assure access to up-to-date immunization records of Georgians
- Assist providers in evaluating the immunization status of their patients
- Avoid duplicate immunizations
- Meet the needs of Georgia's Immunization Registry mandate
- Provide a Registry that is cost-effective, user friendly, and efficient.
