Indiana State Department of Health Takes Strides to Improve Immunization Rates
BLANK
Starting in July, the Indiana State Department of Health will introduce an online tool, “MyVaxIndiana,” allowing the public to directly access their immunization records. Join them for their online Webinar on Wednesday, May 30th from Noon to 1:30 pm where you’ll be introduced to the web portal & be able to ask questions regarding this innovative system.

As one of the first states in the country to lead the nation in finding a solution to the growing rate of immunization challenges, the State Health Commissioner of Indiana, Gregory N. Larkin, MD, FAAFP, FACOEM, offers the following important message:
BLANK
“From the moment I was appointed State Health Commissioner, the Governor challenged me to improve the immunization rates of Hoosiers.  In an effort to improve access and lower costs which often serve as barriers to care, the Indiana State Department of Health has developed a system that may prove to be a key piece of the solution to our state’s immunization rate challenges.

I am proud to announce the “MyVaxIndiana” Web portal.  Beginning July 23, 2012, Hoosiers will be able to directly access their immunization records from any computer through the use of a PIN, giving them the improved ability to make timely, informed decisions regarding their own health care. We are very excited to be one of the first states in the nation to lead this groundbreaking effort.

The goal of MyVaxIndiana is to reduce the burden of unnecessary office visits for both you and the patients you care for.  It is our hope this tool will be of particular use to parents with children who are required to show proof of immunization history to schools. These official immunization records will be pulled from Indiana’s Immunization Registry, CHIRP, and will
be easily printable for any parent to send with their child to school or camp and to use for international travel.
BLANK
Physicians, local health departments, and school nurses will all play a role in the success of this tool.  Your role will be to provide parents with the PIN so that they may then access the records from home. As such, I ask that you join us in an educational forum via an on-line Webinar on Wednesday, May 30th from 12 – 1:30 pm where we will introduce the draft tool to you, explore how the tool will impact you and answer your questions.  This video will be recorded and accessible for viewing following the webinar.”
