The Commissioner of Public Health may create a childhood immunization registry that contains data on children that have yet to start first grade. Health care providers must report (1) the name of each child they immunize; (2) the immunization date; and (3) any applicable “contraindications or exemptions.” Health care providers and parents must have access to the registry in order to determine a child’s immunization needs and their compliance with Connecticut’s school vaccination laws. Local heal directors may also access registry information on children residing within their locality so they may assist children in obtaining overdue vaccinations. Registry information must otherwise remain confidential in accordance with C.G.S.A. § 19a-25; further disclosure requires authorization by the child or their guardian.
