What is CHIRP? The Children and Hoosier Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP) was established in 2002 as a database to collect immunization records for individuals of all ages in Indiana. By centralizing immunization records, individuals in the state can gain access to their records through private providers, local health departments, schools, and MyVaxIndiana. The Indiana Code that established CHIRP is IC 16‐38‐5.
What is the requirement for schools to use CHIRP? Indiana Code requires schools to report immunization data in CHIRP by the first Friday of February each year. Schools must report immunization data for all grades K-12.
The Indiana Department of Health has created the MyVaxIndiana Immunization Portal which enables a person to access a vaccine record from any computer: eportal.isdh.in.gov/MyVaxIndiana
This is a great resource to find your immunization record any time you need it. Please let us know if you need help accessing your SIIS Patient ID number.
Reminder: Vaccinations are required to be current PRIOR to the first day of school.
