3.3.4
Texas law requires all medical providers and payors to report all immunizations administered to clients who are 17 years of age and younger, to ImmTrac, the Texas immunization registry operated by DSHS (Texas Health and Safety Code §§161.007-161.009). Providers must report all immunization information within 30 days of administration of the vaccine, and payors must report within 30 days of receipt of data elements from a provider. Prior to reporting immunizations to ImmTrac, providers must first register for registry participation and access.
ImmTrac is a centralized repository of immunization histories for clients of all ages and is a free service and benefit available to all Texans. Registry information is confidential, and by law, may be released only to:
ImmTrac offers two methods for reporting immunizations to DSHS: direct internet entry into ImmTrac’s internet application and electronic data transfer (import).
