This is a notice that the Scott County Health Department follows the immunization schedule for children and adolescents approved by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). If you chose to opt out of any immunization, you must inform SCHD staff and sign a waiver.

Central Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP)- The Children and Hoosier Immunization Registry Program "CHIRP" consolidates immunization records into a statewide web based computer program.  CHIRP allows for the sharing of immunization information among authorized health care provider, health insurers, schools, and day care centers. CHIRP helps assure adequate immunization, avoid unnecessary immunizations, meet immunization requirements, and control disease outbreaks. The Vigo County Health Department Central Immunization Registry has a strict protocol for maintaining confidentiality and privacy. Parents or guardians may obtain an official immunization record with a photo ID or by activating your child's MyVaxIndiana.
