ImmTrac, the Texas immunization registry, is a free service of the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The immunization registry is a secure and confidential service that consolidates and stores your child’s (under 18 years of age) immunization records. With your consent, your child’s immunization information will be included in ImmTrac. Doctors, public health departments, schools and other authorized professionals can access your child’s immunization history to ensure that important vaccines are not missed.

The Texas Department of State Health Services encourages your voluntary participation in the Texas immunization registry.
