The Washington State Immunization Information System (IIS) (PDF) is a lifetime registry that keeps track of immunization records for people of all ages. The system is a secure, web-based tool for healthcare providers and schools. The IIS connects people who receive, administer, record, and order vaccines in Washington.
NEW! The IIS is now integrated with Secure Access Washington

Immunization Information View Only Agreement: This agreement is for institutions with licensed healthcare providers that wish to view immunization data stored within the IIS to assist in immunization verification and documentation. This includes public school districts, private schools, Head Start, and ECEAP Grantee Agencies with licensed healthcare providers on staff. Access is available through a web-based browser.
Immunization Information Exchange Agreement: This agreement is for licensed healthcare organizations, providers and schools that wish to exchange immunization data with the IIS to provide or coordinate healthcare for their patients. This includes public and private healthcare providers licensed to administer immunizations in Washington State, providers participating in the Washington State Childhood Vaccine Program, authorized health plans, and school nurses using the School Module. Access may be available through a web-based browser, secure file transfer, or through an electronic interface.
This agreement is for schools and child cares that wish to use the IIS School Module to track immunizations of their students as required to attend school or child care in WA. This agreement is limited to schools and childcare organizations without a health care provider, such as a School Nurse. Access is available through a web-based browser.
DOH works closely with our IIS third-party technology vendor to address and fix any technical problems that arise within the registry. We do our best to monitor these issues closely and communicate temporary problems to our stakeholders and IIS users. To drive down program costs, WA participates in a consortium with other states that use the same system. As a result, some upgrades and project priorities are subject to approval from the entire consortium. For comments, questions or concerns about the forecasting, functionality, or the user experience of the WAIIS, please contact the IIS Help Desk at 1-800-325-5599 or WAIISHelpDesk@doh.wa.gov.
