TN Immunization Record Request
TN Immunization Registry - TennIIS
The Tennessee Immunization Information System (TennIIS) is a statewide online immunization registry where records of immunizations may be recorded on persons of all ages.
TN State law authorizes access to immunization information by healthcare professionals and pharmacists, as well as school and childcare personnel responsible for ensuring children meet immunization requirements for participation in school or childcare. Only legally authorized users who register and are approved by TDH staff may be granted secure access to TennIIS.
Not all immunization providers choose to record immunizations they give in TennIIS. The information in TennIIS is only as complete as the information provided by the immunization provider.
Paper immunization records can be entered into TennIIS by your local TN Health Department or by any medical office with TennIIS access.
TennIIS Immunization Record Request
Upon request, the Vaccine-Preventable Diseases and Immunization Program (VPDIP) can provide a copy of an individual's immunization record in TennIIS. An immunization record lists all of an individual's vaccinations recorded in TennIIS. It is not an Official TN Immunization Certificate.
An Official TN Immunization Certificate must be submitted to childcare centers, preschools, or schools to satisfy attendance requirements for childcare through 12th grade. This certificate is available at your local TN Health Department and at any medical office with TennIIS access. For more information regarding the Official TN Immunization Certificate, please visit Immunization Requirements.
Individuals can request a copy of their own TennIIS immunization record or the record of a child if they are the child's parent or legal guardian.

**If the record being requested is for an adult 18 years of age or older the request form must be completed by the individual.**
Once the request has been received, TDH staff will search for the record in TennIIS. If a record is found, we will mail a copy of the immunization history that has been reported to TennIIS to the address on record for the person who was vaccinated (in general, the address provided to the healthcare provider who administered the vaccines).
If no immunization record is found in TennIIS, TDH staff can provide additional suggestions of places one might search for old immunization records.
