Our practice utilizes Maryland’s Central Immunization Registry to log and keep track of all of your child’s immunizations in a safe and easily accessible database. ImmuNet is Maryland’s Immunization Information System (IIS), a confidential and secure database that is HIPAA compliant. It stores an individual’s vaccination records, and is a web-based tool for healthcare providers and schools to keep their patients/students vaccinated on time and avoid under or over vaccinated.
Parents can now access their individual and/or child’s ImmuNet records directly through MyIR, which stands for “My Immunization Record”. MyIR is a portal that allows you to access your or your child’s official vaccination records online. Just like ImmuNet, the portal is confidential, secure, and HIPAA compliant.
To access your or your child’s official vaccination record, visit the portal and register today by clicking below:
We firmly believe that vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as healthcare providers, and that you can perform as parents/caregivers. The recommended vaccines and the vaccine schedule are the results of years and years of scientific study and data gathering on millions of children by thousands of our brightest scientists and physicians.
We firmly believe that all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Because we are committed to protecting the health of your children through vaccination, we require all of our patients to be vaccinated with routine vaccinations recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Infants will receive all age-appropriate recommended vaccines by three months of age, with additional recommended vaccines as well as booster doses by two years of age. Children will receive additional recommended booster doses by the time they are seven years old, and will be given recommended 11–12-year preteen vaccinations by the time they are 13 years old. We will complete 16-year teen vaccinations before each child’s 17th birthday and offer MenB vaccination to all 17-18 year olds before they go to college. We will also offer your child/teen an annual influenza vaccination unless they receive it at a school clinic or pharmacy. At this time, only HPV vaccine and Influenza vaccine are optional in our practice.
Finally, if you should absolutely refuse to vaccinate your child despite all our efforts, we will ask you to find another healthcare provider who shares your views.
