Immunization Release Form
In order to provide immunization records on your child, our office will need a release (PDF) form signed by a parent or legal guardian.
Records will not be released without this consent form or to anyone other than the parent or legal guardian if less than 18 years of age. For those who are 18 years or older, you must complete and sign the form yourself. Records cannot be obtained by parents once a person reaches 18 years of age. Physicians and schools can view the records in the Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP) if they are registered users. Completed release forms may be faxed to our office at 317-776-8506. Records will be sent as soon as possible, but no more than 10 working days once the signed consent is received. Immunization records cannot be emailed due to HIPAA. A MyVaxIndiana PIN# and information will be sent with all immunization records. See below for more information regarding MyVaxIndiana.
A MyVaxIndiana PIN number can be obtained by completing the immunization release form as described above. You will receive a PIN number with instructions on how to obtain an immunization record from CHIRP. You will need to contact your primary care provider to obtain the PIN number if that is where you or your child received immunizations. Our office will supply a PIN number to those who have received immunizations at HCHD or if your provider does not participate in CHIRP. For more information on the MyVaxIndiana initiative, please visit their website.
Please Note: Immunization records may be incomplete in MyVaxIndiana if your physician or physicians have not entered immunizations given to you or your child in CHIRP. Please keep this in mind when reviewing records obtained through MyVaxIndiana.
